Abstract

Wetting and capillary phenomena on the macroscale are ubiquitous and have been well understood. However, the relevant physics and mechanics on the nano-scale still remain mysterious. In this talk, I would like to discuss the exploration of capillarity from a nanoscopic perspective, including wetting, evaporation and condensation. At the solid/liquid interface, the liquid exhibits a pronounced layered structure that extends over several intermolecular distances from the solid surface. Our recent studies have shown that such molecular detail could provide some new understanding on century-old classical theory in this field, such as Young’s equation [1] and Kelvin equation [2].
