Gas-solid coexistence of adhesive spheres

Journal Article

In this note, the authors investigate whether the gas-liquid critical point can remain stable with respect to solidification for narrow attractive interactions down to the Baxter limit. Using a crude cell theory, the authors estimate the necessary conditions for this to be true. Possible realizations are briefly discussed. © 2007 American Institute of Physics.
