摘要：A new orthorhombic phase of silicon diphosphide has been grown in Sn flux by using Gd as a mineralizer. It is a needle-like crystal and its structure has been determined through single crystal X-ray diffraction and elemental analysis. It crystallizes in the orthorhombic space group Pnma (No. 62, Z = 8) with cell parameters: a = 10.0908(19) Å, b = 3.4388(6) Å and c = 13.998(3) Å and the final R value is 0.0294. It has a layered structure that is closely related to the Pbam phase of SiP2. Its optical band gap is 1.45 eV and it decomposes at 1002 K.
