Liquid-gas transition of neon in quasi-one-dimensional environments

We characterize the behavior of a system of Ne20 atoms in a pure one-dimensional environment between 12 and 30 K by means of path integral Monte Carlo calculations. This is a reasonable model to describe neon absorbed inside a narrow carbon nanotube. When embedded in a bundle of those tubes, this quasi-one-dimensional system can undergo a liquid-gas phase transition if nanotubes are narrow and close enough.
