In the field of materials science, heavy demand is being placed on the development of advanced simulation software to help create a variety of amorphous glass structures and discover their new capabilities. To respond to this demand, we are developing simulation techniques for structural formations that totally cause and control the self-formation of amorphous glass structures. We are also developing simulations to evaluate the mechanical, thermodynamic, optical, and electrical properties expressed in the new structures obtained from simulation. We seek to create multi-scale (micro–meso–macro scale) modeling of amorphous glass materials that integrates the methods we have developed.
