The dewetting of a liquid forming a capillary bridge between a plane and a sphere is studied.  The evaporating liquid carries MEH-PVV (a non-volatile polymer with optical applications) which in a sense acts to record the drying dynamics of the carrier liquid (toluene).  In fact, the polymers also perturb the dewetting process via a ``slip-stick" mechanism similar to the effect observed when a drop dries off of an unclean surface.

Brief Summary

The dewetting of a liquid forming a capillary bridge between a plane and a sphere is studied. The evaporating liquid carries MEH-PVV (a non-volatile polymer with optical applications) which in a sense acts to record the drying dynamics of the carrier liquid (toluene). In fact, the polymers also perturb the dewetting process via a ``slip-stick" mechanism similar to the effect observed when a drop dries off of an unclean surface.
