Description

The spinodal instability is the prime signal for the first-order phase transition in the Quantum-ChromoDynamics phase diagram. We evolve planar unstable black branes dual to a plasma with a first order phase transition subject to the spinodal instability. By varying criticality we extract characteristics of the interface between the cold and hot stable phases. We explain a new criterium for distinguishing the inhomogeneous states formed by the spinodal instability. We demonstrate the first holographical dynamical dissipation into the preferred fully phase separated final solution.
