Dewetting usually leads to a mixture of droplets and puddles making it difficult to study the dynamics of the process or to control the final droplet state.

Increasing the amount of gas in the chamber speeds up the catalysis and reduces the deposition step to 5 min, counteracting in this way the occurrence of dewetting of Co [19].

Figure 5), they start as continuous and provided they remain so after the thermal treatment, without desorption or dewetting, the CV traces should remain unaltered.
The PDMS molds can be employed as not only stamps for direct contact printing of polymer inks but also templates for dewetting of polymer solutions under mild experimental conditions, owing to the low modulus and surface energy of PDMS leading to conformal contact and easy release.
ONE OF THE most common problems the industry faces is poor adhesion of conformal coating, causing bubbles and dewetting. FIGURE 1 shows peeling of the coating from the surface of large quad flat packages (QFP).
In my experience, WB coatings tend to be more sensitive to oils and other contamination that cause dewetting, craters, and other defects.

These interactions prevent the detachment and dewetting of rubber during the TSSR measurement and cause high crosslink density estimates, as here observed for the optimal range of APTES concentrations.
