A multifractal analysis using singularity spectra [T.C. Halsey et al., Phys. Rev. A 33, 1141 (1986)] provides a general tool to study the temporal-spatial properties of particles in complex disordered materials such as ions in ionically conducting glasses and melts. Obtained by molecular-dynamics simulations, the accumulated positions of the particles dynamically form a structural pattern called the dynamical potential surface. In this work, the complex dynamical potential surfaces of Li ions in the lithium silicates were visualized and characterized by the multifractal analysis. The fractal dimensions and strength of the singularity related to the spatial intermittency of the dynamics are examined, and the relationship between dynamics and the singularity spectra is discussed.
