A series of amorphous materials having disordered atomic structures such as glasses is known to exist. A difficulty in analyzing amorphous structures, which do not have any periodicity unlike crystals, prevents a deeper understanding of the underlying physics. In this research, we make an attempt to reveal amorphous structures and unique physical phenomena in amorphous materials by complementarily using experimental methods like X-ray/electron diffraction and electron microscopy, computational modeling methods like molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo simulations, and information/mathematical methods like persistent homology analysis.
