Gas-solid coexistence of adhesive spheres

By P. Charbonneau and D. Frenkel


The Baxter limit of adhesive spheres1 is often deemed an\ud unphysical model for liquids due to the thermodynamic\ud metastability of its disordered phases with respect to crystal\ud formation.2,3 In this note we use basic free energy considerations\ud to suggest conditions under which the disordered\ud phases are actually stable with respect to the solid for narrow\ud attractive interactions down to the Baxter limit. Possible realizations\ud are then briefly discussed
