Title: Materials Data on HgTe by Materials Project

Abstract

HgTe is Cinnabar structured and crystallizes in the trigonal P3_121 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Hg2+ is bonded to six equivalent Te2- atoms to form a mixture of distorted edge and corner-sharing HgTe6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 17–24°. There are a spread of Hg–Te bond distances ranging from 2.76–3.76 Å. Te2- is bonded in a 6-coordinate geometry to six equivalent Hg2+ atoms.
