The effect of radiation on the kinetics of the late stage of first-order phase transitions (Ostvald ripening) was studied. In particular, features of the growth kinetics of nuclei were revealed in relation to their size and time of exposure to radiation. Possible approaches to controlling the nucleus growth kinetics were shown.

    We report on finite-size effects in molecular dynamics simulations of the drying and wetting transitions in Lennard-Jones systems. These effects could be the reason for the incompatibility of previous, conflicting results on the nature of the drying of a substrate by a fluid. We indeed observe a...

    Small atomic or molecular clusters provide the bridge between vapor and liquid phases. Nucleation is a rare event process by which clusters of a new phase are produced. This process is inherently dynamic and as such the new phase cannot exist until an activation barrier is surmounted. Dynamical...
