We report the results of first-principle molecular orbital (MO) calculations of amorphous silicon dioxides (Si27O7236-). The first-principles MO method was applied on this cluster, which was taken out of a large amorphous cluster (Si400O800) made by MD calculation. We employed Madelung potential to consider the effects of the remainder atoms out of the larger cluster, and we obtained a density of states (DOS) and partial density of states (PDOS), which could be compared with the experimental results; Si-K, Si-L23, and O-K X-ray emission (or absorption) spectra and near-edge X-ray-absorption fine structures. We calculated the electron structures of this cluster under a uniform electric field (approximately 10 MV/cm). O2p orbital was affected by the electric field.
