Investigating reconstructive phase transitions in large-sized systems requires a highly efficient computational framework with computational cost proportional to the system size. Traditionally, widely used frameworks such as density functional theory (DFT) have been prohibitively expensive for extensive simulations on large systems that require long-time scales. To address this challenge, this study employed well-trained machine learning potential to simulate phase transitions in a largesize system. This work integrates the metadynamics simulation approach with machine learning potential, specifically deep potential, to enhance computational efficiency and accelerate the study of phase transition and consequent development of grains and dislocation defects in a system. The new method is demonstrated using the phase transitions of bulk silicon under high pressure. This approach has revealed the transition path and formation of polycrystalline silicon systems under specific stress conditions, demonstrating the effectiveness of deep potential-driven metadynamics simulations in gaining insights into complex material behaviors in large-sized systems.
