Abstract:Finally, fluid flow and pattern formation during evaporative lithographic patterning of non-aqueous colloidal films differ significantly from their aqueous counterparts. Evaporative cooling creates surface tension gradients that induce recirculating flows and a majority of the particles are deposited at the interface between recirculating flow cells in the non-evaporating, masked regions. Above a critical colloid volume fraction, recirculating flows are suppressed, and a majority of the particles are convected to the regions of higher evaporative flux.
