Title: Materials Data on NbGaCu by Materials Project

Abstract

NbCuGa crystallizes in the orthorhombic Amm2 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are six inequivalent Nb sites. In the first Nb site, Nb is bonded in a 12-coordinate geometry to four Nb, seven Cu, and five Ga atoms. There are a spread of Nb–Nb bond distances ranging from 2.88–3.11 Å. There are four shorter (2.91 Å) and three longer (2.97 Å) Nb–Cu bond lengths. There are three shorter (2.90 Å) and two longer (2.91 Å) Nb–Ga bond lengths. In the second Nb site, Nb is bonded in a 12-coordinate geometry to four Nb, five Cu, and seven Ga atoms. There are one shorter (2.94 Å) and one longer (3.09 Å) Nb–Nb bond lengths. There are a spread of Nb–Cu bond distances ranging from 2.87–2.99 Å. There are a spread of Nb–Ga bond distances ranging from 2.88–2.93 Å. In the third Nb site, Nb is bonded in a 12-coordinate geometry to four Nb, five Cu, and seven Ga atoms. There are one shorter (3.09 Å) and two longer (3.11 Å) Nb–Nb bond lengths.
