Seminar Dynamic unbinding transitions and deposition patterns in dragged meniscus problems
Uwe Thiele

Details:

We study the transfer of a film or patterned deposit onto a flat plate that is extracted from a bath of pure liquid or solution/suspension. After introducing problems related to deposition patterns [1] we first address the case of a pure non-volatile liquid and review some previous works [2,3]. Employing a long-wave hydrodynamic model, that incorporates wettability via a Derjaguin (disjoining) pressure, we analyse steady-state meniscus profiles as the plate velocity is changed. We identify four qualitatively different dynamic transitions between microscopic and macroscopic coatings that are out-of-equilibrium equivalents of equilibrium
unbinding transitions [4].




Next, we discuss a gradient dynamics formulation that allows us to systematically extend the one-component model used above into thermodynamically consistent two-component models [5] as used, e.g., to describe the formation of line patterns during the Langmuir-Blodgett transfer of a surfactant layer from a bath onto a moving plate [6]. Recently, we developed a reduced Cahn-Hilliard-type model to analyse the bifurcation structure of this deposition process [7]. We sketch this rather involved structure and discuss how the time-periodic solutions related to line deposition emerge through various local and global bifurcations.
