Buckle-driven delamination and subsequent collapse of strained thin polymer films upon triggered release from the substrate is exploited to fabricate striking, well-defined ridging patterns (see figure). An analysis of these patterns is presented, including the effects of film thickness and the exterior shape of these "quasi-2D" polymer objects.
