Abstract

In this study, fabrication of the micro/nanoring-like structures was accomplished via solution evaporation inside the microwells. A phenomenological mechanism for the evaporation process inside the microconfinement was proposed, which is different from that for evaporation of a droplet on a substrate in the ambient condition where either the coffee-ring effect or the Marangoni effect is observed. Moreover, reasoning about how the solvent evaporates from the microwells was also provided. It was found that the normalized height of the deposited structure was approximately proportional to the solution concentration.
