Thin metal film deposited on compliant substrate undergoes equi-biaxial compression and buckles into a highly ordered herringbone pattern [1,2]. In this study, it is shown that compare with the bifurcation competing modes, the herringbone mode has the lowest strain energy and therefore it is the preferred buckling pattern in the thin film.
