Paper Title:
Molecular Dynamics Study of Diffusion Behavior in Amorphous Silica with Hydroxyl Group
  Abstract

Molecular dynamics simulations are performed to research the diffusion behavior of amorphous silica with hydroxyl group. Muliken analysis is employed for the determination of initial charge status of simulated systems with various hydroxyl contents. Modified BKS potentials for the interactions between introduced hydroxyl groups and other atoms, are adopted in the present molecular dynamics simulations. Short-range atomic arrangement and self diffusion coefficients of hydroxyl-doped amorphous silica systems are calculated and hereafter compared with those of pure amorphous silica. The calculation results suggest that the doped hydroxyl groups play an important role for the mobility of atoms within the system, which can be employed to the theoretical interpretation of the oxidation process of the ceramics such as silicon nitride.
