A simple fluid, in a microscopic capillary capped at one end, is studied by means of fundamental measure density functional. The model represents a single, infinitely long nanogroove with long-range wall-fluid attractive (dispersion) forces. It is shown that the presenc... View more

Black symbols denote the adsorption path, red symbols denote the desorption path. The lines are the guides to the eye. The vertical dashed line denotes a density corresponding to the prewetting transition in an open slit of width L = 50 .
