Title: Materials Data on Nb3Si by Materials Project

Abstract

Nb3Si is Uranium Silicide structured and crystallizes in the cubic Pm-3m space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Nb is bonded to eight equivalent Nb and four equivalent Si atoms to form NbNb8Si4 cuboctahedra that share corners with twelve equivalent NbNb8Si4 cuboctahedra, edges with eight equivalent SiNb12 cuboctahedra, edges with sixteen equivalent NbNb8Si4 cuboctahedra, faces with four equivalent SiNb12 cuboctahedra, and faces with fourteen equivalent NbNb8Si4 cuboctahedra. All Nb–Nb bond lengths are 2.89 Å. All Nb–Si bond lengths are 2.89 Å. Si is bonded to twelve equivalent Nb atoms to form SiNb12 cuboctahedra that share corners with twelve equivalent SiNb12 cuboctahedra, edges with twenty-four equivalent NbNb8Si4 cuboctahedra, faces with six equivalent SiNb12 cuboctahedra, and faces with twelve equivalent NbNb8Si4 cuboctahedra.
