We examine Landau-Levich coating by a suspension of spherical particles. For particles larger than the liquid film thickness, capillary forces lead to self-assembly of monolayer particle aggregates. We observe two regimes of deposition, find coating fraction as a function of wall speed, and propose a spinodal decomposition (Cahn-Hilliard) model for this pattern formation process.
