This entry provides the atomic structures of three bulk amorphous TiO2 models generated through the melt-and-quench method with different cooling rates and of ten O-O peroxy linkages obtained by adding two holes to the bulk model constructed with the lowest cooling rate.

16.0 KiB The atomic structures of bulk amorphous TiO2 models achieved through the melt-and-quench technique using different cooling rates: (i) 75 K/ps (Model 1), (ii) 300 K/ps (Model 2), and (iii) 600 K/ps (Model 3). The radial distribution functions calculated for these three models differ negligibly (see original paper) .
