Title: Materials Data on Li2GeSb2Te5 by Materials Project

Abstract

Li2GeSb2Te5 is Caswellsilverite-derived structured and crystallizes in the trigonal R3m space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are two inequivalent Li1+ sites. In the first Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded in a 6-coordinate geometry to six Te2- atoms. There are three shorter (2.78 Å) and three longer (3.54 Å) Li–Te bond lengths. In the second Li1+ site, Li1+ is bonded in a 6-coordinate geometry to six Te2- atoms. There are three shorter (2.71 Å) and three longer (3.43 Å) Li–Te bond lengths. Ge4+ is bonded to six Te2- atoms to form GeTe6 octahedra that share corners with three equivalent SbTe6 octahedra, edges with three equivalent SbTe6 octahedra, and edges with six equivalent GeTe6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 4°. There are three shorter (2.88 Å) and three longer (3.22 Å) Ge–Te bond lengths. There are two inequivalent Sb2+ sites. In the first Sb2+ site, Sb2+ is bonded to six Te2- atoms to form a mixture of edge and corner-sharing SbTe6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedral tilt angles are 1°. There are three shorter (3.04 Å) and three longer (3.21 Å) Sb–Te bond lengths. In the second Sb2+ site, Sb2+ is bonded to six Te2- atoms to form SbTe6 octahedramore » that share corners with three equivalent GeTe6 octahedra, corners with three equivalent SbTe6 octahedra, edges with three equivalent GeTe6 octahedra, and edges with nine SbTe6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 1–4°. There are three shorter (3.04 Å) and three longer (3.17 Å) Sb–Te bond lengths. There are five inequivalent Te2- sites. In the first Te2- site, Te2- is bonded to three equivalent Ge4+ and three equivalent Sb2+ atoms to form a mixture of edge and corner-sharing TeGe3Sb3 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 3–9°. In the second Te2- site, Te2- is bonded to three equivalent Li1+ and three equivalent Sb2+ atoms to form TeLi3Sb3 octahedra that share corners with six TeSb6 octahedra and edges with twelve TeLi3Sb3 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 4–21°. In the third Te2- site, Te2- is bonded to six Sb2+ atoms to form a mixture of edge and corner-sharing TeSb6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 3–4°. In the fourth Te2- site, Te2- is bonded to three equivalent Li1+ and three equivalent Ge4+ atoms to form TeLi3Ge3 octahedra that share corners with six TeLi6 octahedra and edges with twelve TeLi3Ge3 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 9–19°. In the fifth Te2- site, Te2- is bonded to six Li1+ atoms to form a mixture of distorted edge and corner-sharing TeLi6 octahedra. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 19–21°.« less
