NIST Standard Reference Database 31
ACerS-NIST Phase Equilibria Diagrams Database: (formerly known as Phase Diagrams for Ceramists)
The Phase Equilibria Diagrams PC Database, Version 4.2 (2017)
The Phase Equilibria Diagrams Database contains commentaries and 27,600 diagrams for non-organic systems, including those published in all 21 hard-copy volumes produced as part of the ACerS-NIST Phase Equilibria Diagrams Program: hard-copy Volumes I through XIV ("blue books"); Annuals 91, 92, 93; High Tc Superconductors I & II; Zirconium & Zirconia Systems; and Electronic Ceramics I. Materials covered include oxides as well as non-oxide systems such as chalcogenides and pnictides, phosphates, salt systems, and mixed systems of these classes.
Version 4.2 is similar to the previous version and functions with the same software that resulted from a comprehensive upgrade of the content management system (CMS), the user interface, and the graphics digitization program (PED Editor). The new CMS is a custom‐developed web‐based system running under Ubuntu Linux using the Ruby programming language. The system uses Nginx web server, an SQLite database, the Route scheduling system, and an object relational mapper for the GUI.
Materials researchers please note: The PED Editor, developed at NIST by Eric Boesch, is available for free Download PED Editor and can be used (1) to digitize phase diagrams and (2) to extract data from phase diagrams or other two-dimensional scientific drawings. (The PED Editor is a custom-developed Java program which uses the iText open‐source PDF file generation library, Batik open‐source SVG file generation library, Jackson open‐source JSON file generation library, and the JAMA Java Matrix package.)
As in the previous version the new search interface is browser‐based and includes help icons at each user‐input location. As of version 4.2, all PED Figures are available as .pdf files which are similar in quality to those in the printed books and which can be printed and saved. Users are able to perform keyword searches of the critical evaluations of all 19,188 PED Figures, allowing them to associate material systems with any potential applications mentioned in the commentary text. In addition, all 27,600 diagrams in the collection are now present in an updated format using the new PED Editor program, enabling all diagrams to be printed as high‐quality .pdf files.
Version 4.2 provides 544 new entries (Figs.15,651-16,194, electronic Volume 20 ) with 1133 new diagrams. The comprehensive, searchable PC product includes all the information printed in the 21 hard‐copy volumes as well as "virtual" Volumes 15, 16, special‐Volume P (phosphorus‐containing) as well as all other special‐issue topical volumes, and 17-20. (Publication of hard‐copy books was discontinued after Vol. 14.) The new content includes experimental and calculated data for a wide range of non‐organic material‐types including oxides and mixed systems with oxides, chalcogenides (sulfides, selenides, tellurides), pnictides (N, P, As, Sb, Bi), actinides (U, Pu, Th) and actinide‐surrogates (Ce), oxy‐cation systems (e.g. molybdates, vanadates), semiconductors (Si, Ge, Sn), group 3 systems (B, Al, Ga, In, Tl), and salts including mixed systems with salts.
The data are pertinent to a wide variety of applications and include systems of interest for renewable energy technologies (e.g. heat-storage/transfer materials, conversion phosphors, photovoltaics, molten electrolytes, advanced anode and electrolyte materials for battery applications, nuclear-reactor technology and radioactive waste recycling) and next-generation electronic, magnetic, photonic, and optoelectronic devices (e.g. proton conductors, luminescent hosts, solid-electrolyte membranes, liquid-crystal displays, electrochemical sensors, magnetic sensors, actuators, capacitors, transducers, thermoelectric elements, memory elements, fluorescent LED materials, laser hosts, optical fibers, magnetic refrigerators, thermoluminescent elements). The collection includes data for material systems of interest in other diverse applications such as antibacterial agents, bio-compatible ceramics, cutting materials, fluxes for metallurgical processing/electrolytic refining, improved cement, ceramic filters, semiconductor manufacturing, catalysts and photo-catalysts, thermal‐barrier coatings, pigments, and fuel cells.
The free demonstration version contains the same functionality as the full version, but with limited content consisting of the 202 figures published in the Phase Diagrams for Ceramists: Annual '92, and 11 figures from Volume 15. In addition, the demonstration version serves as a searchable, comprehensive chemical index for the entire database.
