The structure of the liquid and amorphous Fe78Si9B13 alloys is investigated by ab initio molecular dynamics simulation. The amorphous structure bears a strong resemblance to the liquid structure on both the atomic and electronic levels. Chemical short-range order is evidenced by higher Fe coordinating proportion than the nominal one around both Si and B atoms in both the liquid and amorphous states. The atomic distances and the local densities of states show that Fe–Si bonding is stronger than Fe–B bonding and Si and B tend to repulse each other.
