Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The adhesion of microcapsules to an attractive contact potential is studied theoretically. The axisymmetric shape equations are solved numerically. Beyond a universal threshold strength of the potential, the contact radius increases in proportion to the square root of the strength. Scaling functions for the corresponding amplitudes are derived as a function of the elastic parameters.
