We develop model interaction potentials for the binary Se-Te system using ab initio molecular simulations and a cluster expansion technique. These potentials are used with classical Monte Carlo simulations to characterize the structure of SexTe1-x glasses. The model potentials successfully reproduce the two-coordinated chainlike structure of these glasses and lead to phase separation for x0.4.
