Abstract

On page 5441, Karen K. Gleason, Mary C. Boyce, and co-workers demonstrate a deterministic method to obtain orderly herringbone patterns through buckling of a stiff thin film deposited by chemical vapor deposition on a compliant substrate. Controlling the stretching and releasing of the sample enables tuning the features of the wrinkled surface, obtaining for the first time jog angles lower than 90°.
