International Centre for Diffraction Data

The new Powder Diffraction File™, housing more than 760,000 diffraction patterns and 200,000 crystal structures, has a wealth of information that a materials scientist can take advantage of in various ways, from materials identification/characterization to design. Various structural and chemical classifications implemented in the database will be presented in detail.

The Powder Diffraction File™: Produced and Delivered through Worldwide Partnerships
Timothy Fawcett, Cyrus Crowder, Soorya Kabekkodu
International Centre for Diffraction Data

The Powder Diffraction File™ was established in 1941 by a group of leading scientists working in the field of X-ray analysis. Their work was supported by many cooperating organizations and scientific societies and was based on the pioneering 1936 article by Hanawalt and Rinn, "Identification of Crystalline Materials, Classification and Use of X-ray Patterns." The work of producing reference diffraction patterns, editing, standardization and classification quickly became an international effort that continues today, with publication and distribution of the database by the International Centre for Diffraction Data.
