This work has been led by the group of Alex Shluger at UCL Physics. We have helped by quantifying the extent of the regions of empty space (we call them “voids”) within the the system (amorphous SiO_2), which is important to understand the diffusion of small molecules such as NO through the amorphous phase. Have a look
at the paper online or grab a .pdf.

Our voids framework, which we have been using quite a lot in the context of liquid water appears to have found yet another playground… stay tuned for some more updates re: the code itself. Soon enough you might find it on GitHub!
