Materials Data®, also known as MDI, and the International Centre for Diffraction Data are now united and continues to serve the global XRD community. ICDD and MDI have worked together in a complementary manner since MDI began in 1987.
Materials Data creates XRD software applications to collect, analyze, and simulate XRD data. MDI is best known for JADE, which may be found in labs wherever X-ray powder diffraction data is explored. MDI software works universally with every manufacturer of XRD equipment to help provide unbiased results.
