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.
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.March 11, 2019: New App to Predict Interface Reactions Between Solids
We are proud to officially launch an application that calculates possible interface reactions between solids using thermodynamic driving forces. More info.Feb. 13, 2019: Database V2019.02 Released
We have added over 47,000 new compounds! We also improved feedback on structure submission via the Crystal Toolkit. More info.Nov. 1, 2018: Database V2018.11 Released
In this major release, we have changed the grouping of magnetic materials and fixed many display/labeling issues. More info.
