Title: Crossover of thermal expansion from positive to negative by removing the excess fluorines in cubic ReO 3-type TiZrF 7-x

Abstract

Here, we report the crossover of the coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) from positive to negative by withdrawing the excess fluorines in ReO 3-type TiZrF 7-x (x = 0, 0.5 and 1) compounds. The average volumetric CTE between 300 K and 623 K changes from 8.07 ppm K -1 for x = 0, to 0.66 ppm K -1 for x = 0.5 and finally to -6.09 ppm K -1 for x = 1. After withdrawing the excess fluorines, the lattice expands and the edge-sharing polyhedra partially transform to corner-sharing ones, which enhances the transverse vibrations of fluorines and thus accounts for the crossover of CTE. Moreover, these compounds are narrow-gap semiconductors with the energy gap decreasing with x. NTE may also be achievable in other fluorine-excess cubic fluorides by removing the excess fluorines, which opens up a new avenue for exploring the NTE in fluorides.
