Previously unknown mechanism drives evaporation at the nanoscale

Evaporation is so common that everybody thinks it is a well understood phenomenon. Appearances can be, however, deceptive. Recently, a new, earlier not predicted mechanism of evaporation was discovered. Experiments and simulations not only confirm its existence, but also indicate that it plays the crucial role in evaporation process in the nanoscale.
