Title: Materials Data on TePb by Materials Project

Abstract

PbTe crystallizes in the orthorhombic Pnma space group. The structure is two-dimensional and consists of two PbTe sheets oriented in the (0, 0, 1) direction. Pb2+ is bonded to five equivalent Te2- atoms to form a mixture of corner and edge-sharing PbTe5 square pyramids. There are a spread of Pb–Te bond distances ranging from 3.04–3.31 Å. Te2- is bonded to five equivalent Pb2+ atoms to form a mixture of corner and edge-sharing TePb5 square pyramids.
