Geometry-induced phase transition in fluids: Capillary prewetting

Article, Preprint English OPEN
Yatsyshin, Petr; Savva, Nikos; Kalliadasis, Serafim;

We report a new first-order phase transition preceding capillary condensation and corresponding to the discontinuous formation of a curved liquid meniscus. Using a mean-field microscopic approach based on the density functional theory we compute the complete phase diagr... View more
