NIST 15. NIST/Sandia/ICDD Electron Diffraction Database



Vicky L. Karen


Designed for phase characterization obtained by electron diffraction methods, this database and associated software permit highly selective identification procedures for microscopic and macroscopic crystalline materials.The database contains chemical, physical, and crystallographic information on a wide variety of materials (over 81,534) including minerals, metals, intermetallics, and general inorganic compounds.The Electron Diffraction Database has been designed to include all the data required to identify materials using computerized d-spacing/formula matching techniques.
