Materials Project

A results database of first-principle calculation for material science. This database provides numerical data of crystal structures, band structures, thermodynamic quantities, phase diagrams, magnetic moments, and so on. This site is maintained by a research group of MIT, and has extensive data of materials related to lithium battery. In addition to a user interface based on web browsers, an http-based API is also provided to enable user-defined material screening. This database can be used without charge after registration.

Cambridge Structure Database (CSD)

A fee-charging structure database of organic materials crystal structures. Three-dimensional structure data of small molecules and metal-organic crystals determined by the X-ray diffraction measurement can be downloaded. The data are compiled and distributed by the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC).

ICSD

A commercial database of inorganic crystal structures. This database is run by FIZ Karlsruhe. 181,000 crystal structure data are registered as of March 2016. 6,000 crystal structure data are added per year on average, and data are updated twice per year based on data in published scientific journals.

Protein Data Bank (PDB)

A structure database for proteins and nuclear acids. Three-dimensional structure data of proteins and nuclear acids (atomic coordinates determined experimentally by X-ray crystal analysis, NMR, etc.) can be downloaded. The data reposited in PDB are in the public domain, and can be accessed by everyone freely.

AFLOWLIB

A results database of first-principle calculation for material science. This database provides numerical data of crystal structures, band structures, thermodynamic quantities, phase diagrams, magnetic moments, and so on. This site is maintained by a research group of Duke University, and in particular, has extensive data of Heusler alloys. In addition to a user interface based on web browsers, an http-based API is also provided to enable user-defined material screening. This database can be used without charge after registration.

ArgusLab

  • Level of openness 0 ☆☆☆
  • Document quality 0 ☆☆☆

An application for modeling and visualization of molecules for quantum chemical calculation. This application implements a construction of
molecular structures with classical molecular dynamics simulation and structure optimization by simple generic force fields, and a preparation of input files for applications of quantum chemical calculation such as Gaussian. A binary package for Windows XP is available, and informal packages for Windows 7, iPad, and Linux exist.
