Title: Materials Data on Yb2S3 by Materials Project

Abstract

Yb2S3 crystallizes in the hexagonal P6_3cm space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are four inequivalent Yb3+ sites. In the first Yb3+ site, Yb3+ is bonded in a 3-coordinate geometry to three equivalent S2- atoms. All Yb–S bond lengths are 2.72 Å. In the second Yb3+ site, Yb3+ is bonded to six S2- atoms to form distorted YbS6 octahedra that share corners with three equivalent YbS6 octahedra, corners with three equivalent SYb4S trigonal bipyramids, and edges with three equivalent YbS6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 57°. There are three shorter (2.79 Å) and three longer (2.87 Å) Yb–S bond lengths. In the third Yb3+ site, Yb3+ is bonded in a 9-coordinate geometry to nine S2- atoms. There are a spread of Yb–S bond distances ranging from 2.77–3.09 Å. In the fourth Yb3+ site, Yb3+ is bonded to six S2- atoms to form distorted corner-sharing YbS6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 57°. There are three shorter (2.73 Å) and three longer (2.83 Å) Yb–S bond lengths. There are three inequivalent S2- sites. In the first S2- site, S2- is bonded to four Yb3+ and one S2- atom to form distorted SYb4S trigonal bipyramids that share corners withmore » two equivalent YbS6 octahedra, corners with four equivalent SYb4S trigonal bipyramids, and edges with two equivalent SYb4S trigonal bipyramids. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 62°. The S–S bond length is 2.08 Å. In the second S2- site, S2- is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to four Yb3+ and one S2- atom. In the third S2- site, S2- is bonded in a 5-coordinate geometry to five Yb3+ atoms.« less
