Stability and pinning points in substrate-confined liquids


Confinement of liquid by concavities in a substrate surface is treated with reference to contemporary interest in growing semiconductor crystal on inert substrates. Instabilities that occur during or after filling of simple concavity shapes are considered, with particular attention to the influence of discontinuities of slope in the substrate.
