Title: Materials Data on Er3Sn7 by Materials Project

Abstract

Er3Sn7 crystallizes in the orthorhombic Cmmm space group. The structure is three-dimensional. there are two inequivalent Er sites. In the first Er site, Er is bonded to twelve Sn atoms to form a mixture of corner and face-sharing ErSn12 cuboctahedra. There are a spread of Er–Sn bond distances ranging from 3.12–3.40 Å. In the second Er site, Er is bonded in a 10-coordinate geometry to ten Sn atoms. There are a spread of Er–Sn bond distances ranging from 3.17–3.44 Å. There are four inequivalent Sn sites. In the first Sn site, Sn is bonded in a square co-planar geometry to four equivalent Er and eight Sn atoms. There are four shorter (3.38 Å) and four longer (3.40 Å) Sn–Sn bond lengths. In the second Sn site, Sn is bonded in a 10-coordinate geometry to four Er and six Sn atoms. All Sn–Sn bond lengths are 3.12 Å. In the third Sn site, Sn is bonded in a 10-coordinate geometry to four Er and six Sn atoms. In the fourth Sn site, Sn is bonded in a 4-coordinate geometry to six equivalent Er and two equivalent Sn atoms. Both Sn–Sn bond lengths are 3.03 Å.
