Atomic configurations of glassy silica (SiO2) and Jade Glass generated by molecular dynamics (MD) and force-enhanced atomic refinement (FEAR). The configurations have the LAMMPS Data format. Computed neutron structure factors and ring size distribution (using the Guttman definition) are also provided.

Access to the data: SilicaJade
