Effects of surface tension on the suction forces generated by miniature craters

There are emerging demonstrations that micro- or nano-craters engineered on polymer surfaces can enable enhanced adhesion. In the past, we have developed a framework for quantifying the suction forces produced by isolated macroscopic craters neglecting surface effects. In this paper, we take surface tension into consideration because it plays a significant role in miniature craters on soft polymers. We have derived linear and nonlinear elastic solutions for the elasto-capillary distortion in miniature hemispherical craters whentheyare demoldedfromthe template.
