Molecular dynamics simulations of evaporative cooling of nanometer-sized water droplets
  Molecular Physics seminar

Monday 04 November 2013
from 10:00 to 11:00
at FA31
Speaker : Daniel Schlesinger (Molecular Physics Department)
Abstract : Motivated by recent experiments we perform molecular dynamics simulations of droplets of TIP4P/2005 water in vacuum to investigate the temperature evolution caused by evaporation and to compare the results to the predictions from Knudsen's theory. We discuss different influences on the evaporation rate. The Knudsen theory is found to perform well, even for the microscopic dimensions.
