Evolutionary structure searches revealed a plethora of stable and low-enthalpy metastable phases in the S-P-H ternary phase diagram under pressure. A wide variety of crystalline structure types were uncovered ranging from those possessing one-dimensional chains, twodimensional sheets based on S-H or S-P-H square lattices as well as S-H or P-H honeycombs, and cage-like structures. Some of the cage-like structures could be derived from doping the high-pressure high-temperature superconducting Im3…
