Title: Materials Data on Yb(YSe2)2 by Materials Project

Abstract

Yb(YSe2)2 crystallizes in the orthorhombic Pnma space group. The structure is three-dimensional. Yb2+ is bonded to seven Se2- atoms to form distorted YbSe7 pentagonal bipyramids that share corners with eight YSe6 octahedra, edges with five YSe6 octahedra, edges with two equivalent YbSe7 pentagonal bipyramids, and faces with two equivalent YbSe7 pentagonal bipyramids. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 12–66°. There are a spread of Yb–Se bond distances ranging from 2.99–3.16 Å. There are two inequivalent Y3+ sites. In the first Y3+ site, Y3+ is bonded to six Se2- atoms to form YSe6 octahedra that share corners with three equivalent YSe6 octahedra, corners with four equivalent YbSe7 pentagonal bipyramids, edges with six YSe6 octahedra, and an edgeedge with one YbSe7 pentagonal bipyramid. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 51–60°. There are a spread of Y–Se bond distances ranging from 2.85–2.94 Å. In the second Y3+ site, Y3+ is bonded to six Se2- atoms to form YSe6 octahedra that share corners with three equivalent YSe6 octahedra, corners with four equivalent YbSe7 pentagonal bipyramids, edges with four YSe6 octahedra, and edges with four equivalent YbSe7 pentagonal bipyramids. The corner-sharing octahedra tilt angles range from 51–60°. There are a spread of Y–Semore » bond distances ranging from 2.85–2.90 Å. There are four inequivalent Se2- sites. In the first Se2- site, Se2- is bonded to two equivalent Yb2+ and three Y3+ atoms to form a mixture of distorted edge and corner-sharing SeYb2Y3 trigonal bipyramids. In the second Se2- site, Se2- is bonded to two equivalent Yb2+ and three Y3+ atoms to form SeYb2Y3 square pyramids that share corners with two equivalent SeYb3Y2 square pyramids, corners with two equivalent SeYb2Y3 trigonal bipyramids, edges with five SeYb2Y3 square pyramids, and edges with three equivalent SeYb2Y3 trigonal bipyramids. In the third Se2- site, Se2- is bonded to three equivalent Yb2+ and two equivalent Y3+ atoms to form a mixture of edge and corner-sharing SeYb3Y2 square pyramids. In the fourth Se2- site, Se2- is bonded in a rectangular see-saw-like geometry to four Y3+ atoms.« less
