Evaporation of a sub-micrometer droplet

Title: Evaporation of a sub-micrometer droplet
Abstract: Evaporation of a spherically symmetric sub-micrometer size liquid is studied using a diffuse interface hydrodynamic model by the van der Waals equation of state with parameters for argon. The droplet, surrounded by saturated vapor, is in a container with the temperature of the walls kept fixed. The is triggered by a sudden rise of the temperature of the Time and space evolution of the basic thermodynamic quantities is The time and space scales studied range from picoseconds to and from nanometers to micrometers, respectively. We find the temperature and chemical potential are both continuous at the on the scale larger than the interfacial width. We find that long times the radius R of the droplet changes with time t as R-2(t)
