The International Centre for Diffraction Data Dear ICDD Customer:

ICDD's Powder Diffraction File has the largest compilation of entries for materials identification! Today the Powder Diffraction File boasts 348,516 entries. ICDD has released several products from this compilation to meet your materials identification needs: PDF-2, Release 2003, PDF-4/Full File 2003, PDF-4/Minerals 2003 and PDF-4/Organics 2004.

ICDD Product Highlights ICDD Important Dates
PDF-2 Release 2003 - 157,048 entries
PDF-4/Full File 2003 - 157,048 entries
PDF-4/Minerals 2003 - 17,535 entries
PDF-4/Organics 2004 - 218,194 entries

The PDF-4 format of the Powder Diffraction File gives unprecedented power to the end user relative to integrated data retrieval and rapid data analysis. In a major reorganization of the Powder Diffraction File (PDF), all entries have been put into a relational database format featured only in our PDF-4 products. In this format, all the entry fields for diffraction, crystallographic, bibliographic and physical property data are placed in individual tables that can be queried through the use of 32 different classification systems (i.e. formula, d-spacing, space group).

Powerful interactive graphics have been interfaced with this new format allowing users to transform diffraction data from the historic stick patterns of d's and I's into a fully digitized pattern using on-the-fly calculation technology. In addition to the increased functionality and attractive pricing offered by ICDD, large equipment manufacturers have integrated their automatic search/match software to the PDF-4 format.
