International Centre for Diffraction Data Celebrates Anniversaries

April 19, 2011

ICDD was established in 1941 as a non-profit scientific organization dedicated to collecting, editing, publishing, and distributing powder diffraction data for the identification of materials. As we celebrate our 70th anniversary, we reflect on our founder’s visions to serve as an organization dedicated to diffraction technology and education. From handwritten entries to data cards, keypunch cards, magnetic tape, CDs and DVDs, and now access via the Web our dynamic organization continues to evolve along with the community that it serves. We will continue to be the world center for quality diffraction and related data. We will continue to promote the application of materials characterization methods in science and technology by providing forums for the exchange of ideas and information.
