# Materials Data on Ca7Ge by Materials Project

## Abstract

Ca7Ge is beta-derived structured and crystallizes in the cubic Fm-3m space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are twenty-five inequivalent Ca sites. In the first Ca site, Ca is bonded to ten Ca and two equivalent Ge atoms to form distorted CaCa10Ge2 cuboctahedra that share corners with twelve CaCa10Ge2 cuboctahedra, edges with four equivalent GeCa12 cuboctahedra, edges with twenty CaCa12 cuboctahedra, faces with two equivalent GeCa12 cuboctahedra, and faces with sixteen CaCa12 cuboctahedra. All Ca–Ca bond lengths are 3.72 Å. Both Ca–Ge bond lengths are 3.72 Å. In the second Ca site, Ca is bonded to twelve Ca atoms to form CaCa12 cuboctahedra that share corners with twelve equivalent CaCa12 cuboctahedra, edges with twenty-four CaCa10Ge2 cuboctahedra, faces with six equivalent GeCa12 cuboctahedra, and faces with twelve CaCa10Ge2 cuboctahedra. All Ca–Ca bond lengths are 3.72 Å. In the third Ca site, Ca is bonded to ten Ca and two equivalent Ge atoms to form distorted CaCa10Ge2 cuboctahedra that share corners with twelve CaCa10Ge2 cuboctahedra, edges with four equivalent GeCa12 cuboctahedra, edges with twenty CaCa12 cuboctahedra, faces with two equivalent GeCa12 cuboctahedra, and faces with sixteen CaCa10Ge2 cuboctahedra. All Ca–Ca bond lengths are 3.72 Å. Both Ca–Ge bond lengths are 3.72 Å.more »
