Filling transitions in acute and open wedges.


We present numerical studies of first-order and continuous filling transitions in wedges of arbitrary opening angle ψ, using a microscopic fundamental measure density functional model with short-ranged fluid-fluid forces and long-ranged wall-fluid forces. In this system the wetting transition characteristic of the planar wall-fluid interface is always first… (More)
