Harnessing the power of supercomputing and state of the art electronic structure methods, the Materials Project provides open web-based access to computed information on known and predicted materials as well as powerful analysis tools to inspire and design novel materials.
If you feel comfortable with Python, use our dedicated MPContribs platform to contribute your data to MP. We automatically expose it to MP users on our materials details pages. Get started with this docs page and feel free to join our Slack group for questions. Stay tuned for more features and documentation :)June 30, 2020: Database V2020.06 Released
We've added several thousand materials including many magnetic ground states, improved the accuracy of our energetics, and fixed several bugs. This database release is part of on-going efforts in 2020 to improve database reliability and quality, following the introduction of our deprecation process last year.

See the announcement here. Limited to 60 participants. We hope you can join us!Nov. 21, 2019: Database V2019.11 Released
We've added 3,971 new materials and tagged "amorphous" materials as computed through our Synthesizeability Skyline. We also tagged materials as "theoretical" if the material does not match to an experimental structure from the ICSD. More info.May 20, 2019: Database V2019.05 Released
We have deprecated nearly 15,000 materials and added over 3,600 new ones. More info.
