Other compounds with this structure

  • LaAgSeO and LaAgTeO

  • This structure has the same space group and Wyckoff positions as AsCuSiZr, but there is a substantial difference in the $c/a$ ratio leading to different bonding between the layers.

Simple Tetragonal primitive vectors:

\[ \begin{array}{ccc} \mathbf{a}_1 & = & a \, \mathbf{\hat{x}} \\ \mathbf{a}_2 & = & a \, \mathbf{\hat{y}} \\ \mathbf{a}_3 & = & c \, \mathbf{\hat{z}} \\ \end{array} \]
