Title: Materials Data on Er3TaO7 by Materials Project

Abstract

Er3TaO7 crystallizes in the orthorhombic Cmcm space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are two inequivalent Er3+ sites. In the first Er3+ site, Er3+ is bonded to seven O2- atoms to form distorted ErO7 pentagonal bipyramids that share corners with two equivalent TaO6 octahedra, corners with three equivalent ErO7 pentagonal bipyramids, edges with two equivalent TaO6 octahedra, and edges with two equivalent ErO7 pentagonal bipyramids. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 45°. There are a spread of Er–O bond distances ranging from 2.19–2.68 Å. In the second Er3+ site, Er3+ is bonded in a body-centered cubic geometry to eight O2- atoms. There are four shorter (2.35 Å) and four longer (2.63 Å) Er–O bond lengths. Ta5+ is bonded to six O2- atoms to form TaO6 octahedra that share corners with two equivalent TaO6 octahedra, corners with four equivalent ErO7 pentagonal bipyramids, and edges with four equivalent ErO7 pentagonal bipyramids. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 31°. There is two shorter (1.95 Å) and four longer (2.00 Å) Ta–O bond length. There are three inequivalent O2- sites. In the first O2- site, O2- is bonded to four Er3+ atoms to form a mixture of edge and corner-sharing OEr4 tetrahedra. In themore » second O2- site, O2- is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to three Er3+ and one Ta5+ atom. In the third O2- site, O2- is bonded in a distorted bent 150 degrees geometry to two equivalent Er3+ and two equivalent Ta5+ atoms.« less
