Title: Materials Data on Ba2Y(CuO2)4 by Materials Project

Abstract

YBa2Cu4O8 crystallizes in the orthorhombic Cmmm space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Ba2+ is bonded in a 10-coordinate geometry to ten O2- atoms. There are a spread of Ba–O bond distances ranging from 2.76–3.12 Å. Y3+ is bonded in a distorted q6 geometry to two equivalent Cu+2.25+ and eight O2- atoms. Both Y–Cu bond lengths are 2.42 Å. There are four shorter (2.56 Å) and four longer (2.57 Å) Y–O bond lengths. There are two inequivalent Cu+2.25+ sites. In the first Cu+2.25+ site, Cu+2.25+ is bonded in a square co-planar geometry to four O2- atoms. There are a spread of Cu–O bond distances ranging from 1.87–1.94 Å. In the second Cu+2.25+ site, Cu+2.25+ is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to one Y3+ and five O2- atoms. There are a spread of Cu–O bond distances ranging from 1.98–2.07 Å. There are four inequivalent O2- sites. In the first O2- site, O2- is bonded to four equivalent Ba2+ and two Cu+2.25+ atoms to form a mixture of distorted edge and corner-sharing OBa4Cu2 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 17°. In the second O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 2-coordinate geometry to two equivalent Ba2+, two equivalent Y3+, and two equivalentmore » Cu+2.25+ atoms. In the third O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 2-coordinate geometry to two equivalent Ba2+, two equivalent Y3+, and two equivalent Cu+2.25+ atoms. In the fourth O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted T-shaped geometry to two equivalent Ba2+ and three equivalent Cu+2.25+ atoms.« less
