Title: Materials Data on Ba(TbTe2)2 by Materials Project

Abstract

Ba(TbTe2)2 crystallizes in the orthorhombic Pnma space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Ba2+ is bonded in a 8-coordinate geometry to eight Te2- atoms. There are a spread of Ba–Te bond distances ranging from 3.57–3.76 Å. There are two inequivalent Tb3+ sites. In the first Tb3+ site, Tb3+ is bonded to six Te2- atoms to form a mixture of edge and corner-sharing TbTe6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 47–59°. There are a spread of Tb–Te bond distances ranging from 3.07–3.15 Å. In the second Tb3+ site, Tb3+ is bonded to six Te2- atoms to form a mixture of edge and corner-sharing TbTe6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 47–59°. There are a spread of Tb–Te bond distances ranging from 3.08–3.14 Å. There are four inequivalent Te2- sites. In the first Te2- site, Te2- is bonded to two equivalent Ba2+ and three Tb3+ atoms to form a mixture of distorted edge and corner-sharing TeBa2Tb3 trigonal bipyramids. In the second Te2- site, Te2- is bonded to two equivalent Ba2+ and three equivalent Tb3+ atoms to form a mixture of distorted edge and corner-sharing TeBa2Tb3 square pyramids. In the third Te2- site, Te2- is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometrymore » to two equivalent Ba2+ and three Tb3+ atoms. In the fourth Te2- site, Te2- is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to two equivalent Ba2+ and three equivalent Tb3+ atoms.« less
