Silicon dioxide plays an important role in integrated circuits and microelectronics. However, the experiments have limitations in micro /nano-scale characterization of fracture properties at high temperatures. In this paper, the structural and fracture properties of amorphous silicon dioxide (a-SiO2) were studied at temperatures up to 1500K. The simulation results consist with the experiments on pair distribution functions, structure factor and angular distributions.
