  • Despite their lack of long-range translational and orientational order, covalent amorphous solids can exhibit structural order over both short and medium length scales, the latter reaching to 20 Å or so. Medium-range order is difficult to measure experimentally and to interpret unambiguously, but a variety of techniques have allowed several types of characteristic structural ordering to be identified and their origin elucidated.
