Materials Data®, also known as MDI, and the International Centre for Diffraction Data are now united and continue 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.

The International Centre for Diffraction Data (ICDD®) is a non-profit scientific organization dedicated to collecting, editing, publishing, and distributing powder diffraction data for the identification of materials. The membership of the ICDD consists of worldwide representation from academe, government, and industry.
The Powder Diffraction File™ (PDF®) is the only crystallographic database that is specifically designed for material identification and characterization. It is an analysis system that is comprised of crystallographic and diffraction data. These data with embedded data mining and analysis software have been through a quality and classification editorial review system.
ISO Certified
The only crystallographic database organization in the world with its Quality Management System ISO 9001:2015 certified by DEKRA.
