Molecular alignment in molecular fluids induced by coupling between density and thermal gradients.

Abstract

We investigate, using non-equilibrium molecular dynamics simulations and theory, the response of molecular fluids confined in slit pores under the influence of a thermal gradient and/or an applied force. The applied force which has the same functional form as a gravitational force induces an inhomogeneous density in the confined fluid, which results in a… (More)
