Title: Materials Data on SiO2 by Materials Project

Abstract

SiO2 is Low Tridymite-like structured and crystallizes in the orthorhombic Amm2 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are nine inequivalent Si4+ sites. In the first Si4+ site, Si4+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form corner-sharing SiO4 tetrahedra. There is two shorter (1.61 Å) and two longer (1.62 Å) Si–O bond length. In the second Si4+ site, Si4+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form corner-sharing SiO4 tetrahedra. There is one shorter (1.62 Å) and three longer (1.63 Å) Si–O bond length. In the third Si4+ site, Si4+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form corner-sharing SiO4 tetrahedra. There is two shorter (1.62 Å) and two longer (1.63 Å) Si–O bond length. In the fourth Si4+ site, Si4+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form corner-sharing SiO4 tetrahedra. There is three shorter (1.62 Å) and one longer (1.63 Å) Si–O bond length. In the fifth Si4+ site, Si4+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form corner-sharing SiO4 tetrahedra. There is two shorter (1.62 Å) and two longer (1.63 Å) Si–O bond length. In the sixth Si4+ site, Si4+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form corner-sharing SiO4 tetrahedra. There is one shorter (1.62more » Å) and three longer (1.63 Å) Si–O bond length. In the seventh Si4+ site, Si4+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form corner-sharing SiO4 tetrahedra. There is one shorter (1.62 Å) and three longer (1.63 Å) Si–O bond length. In the eighth Si4+ site, Si4+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form corner-sharing SiO4 tetrahedra. There is two shorter (1.62 Å) and two longer (1.63 Å) Si–O bond length. In the ninth Si4+ site, Si4+ is bonded to four O2- atoms to form corner-sharing SiO4 tetrahedra. There are a spread of Si–O bond distances ranging from 1.61–1.64 Å. There are twenty-one inequivalent O2- sites. In the first O2- site, O2- is bonded in a bent 150 degrees geometry to two Si4+ atoms. In the second O2- site, O2- is bonded in a bent 150 degrees geometry to two equivalent Si4+ atoms. In the third O2- site, O2- is bonded in a bent 150 degrees geometry to two Si4+ atoms. In the fourth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a bent 150 degrees geometry to two Si4+ atoms. In the fifth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a bent 150 degrees geometry to two equivalent Si4+ atoms. In the sixth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a bent 150 degrees geometry to two equivalent Si4+ atoms. In the seventh O2- site, O2- is bonded in a bent 150 degrees geometry to two Si4+ atoms. In the eighth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a bent 150 degrees geometry to two Si4+ atoms. In the ninth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a bent 150 degrees geometry to two Si4+ atoms. In the tenth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a bent 150 degrees geometry to two Si4+ atoms. In the eleventh O2- site, O2- is bonded in a bent 150 degrees geometry to two equivalent Si4+ atoms. In the twelfth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a bent 150 degrees geometry to two Si4+ atoms. In the thirteenth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a bent 150 degrees geometry to two equivalent Si4+ atoms. In the fourteenth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a bent 150 degrees geometry to two equivalent Si4+ atoms. In the fifteenth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a bent 150 degrees geometry to two Si4+ atoms. In the sixteenth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a linear geometry to two Si4+ atoms. In the seventeenth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a bent 150 degrees geometry to two equivalent Si4+ atoms. In the eighteenth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a linear geometry to two Si4+ atoms. In the nineteenth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a bent 150 degrees geometry to two equivalent Si4+ atoms. In the twentieth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a bent 150 degrees geometry to two equivalent Si4+ atoms. In the twenty-first O2- site, O2- is bonded in a bent 150 degrees geometry to two equivalent Si4+ atoms.« less
