7d). The shape and morphology of the rim is governed by the locally acting Laplace pressure (Γ). If Γ is constant along the rim, an almost symmetric rim profile results, which can be schematically represented by a semi-cylinder. Variations of Γ along the cylinder, generated by variations in the contact angle Θ, result in flow along the cylinder and thus will cause corresponding variations in the width and height of the rim. In addition, the length-scale of the non-wettable pattern imprinted on the substrate causes periodic fluctuation of the triple-line which, in turn, can trigger the Plateau–Rayleigh type instability [23].
