Critical Point Wedge Filling    [PDF]

Alexandr Malijevsky, Andrew O. Parry
We present results of a microscopic density functional theory study of wedge filling transitions, at a right-angle wedge, in the presence of dispersion-like wall-fluid forces. Far from the corner the walls of the wedge show a first-order wetting transition at a temperature $T_w$ which is progressively closer to the bulk critical temperature $T_c$ as the strength of the wall forces is reduced. In addition, the meniscus formed near the corner undergoes a filling transition at a temperature $T_fView original:
