Rational design of materials with extreme negative compressibility: selective soft-mode frustration in KMn[Ag(CN)2]3

Abstract:

We show that KMn[Ag(CN)₂]₃ exhibits the strongest negative linear compressibility (NLC) effect over the largest pressure range yet observed. Variable pressure neutron powder diffraction measurements reveal that its crystal lattice expands along the c axis of its trigonal cell under increasing hydrostatic pressure, while contracting along the a axis. This corresponds to a “wine-rack”-like mechanism for NLC that we find also results in anisotropic negative thermal expansion (NTE) in the same ma...
