With our 2021 release of the Powder Diffraction FileTM (PDF®), you are able to view 1,047,661 unique material data sets. Each data set contains diffraction, crystallographic and bibliographic data, as well as experimental, instrument and sampling conditions, and select physical properties in a common standardized format.

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.

ICDD Newsletters give you timely updates on our products, upcoming events, education opportunities, and more!


JADE® = Everything you need for XRD Pattern Processing!

MDI is best known for JADE and is used in labs wherever X-ray powder diffraction data are explored. MDI software works universally with every manufacturer of XRD equipment to help provide unbiased results.

whole pattern fitting + rietveld

Quantify weight percentages and identify minor phases quickly and easily. JADE even automates these tasks as soon as you load your pattern.

one-click analysis

Automate your analysis with JADE. In so many cases, it’s just one click and you’re done. Often these results are better than those an experienced analyst could report and in a more timely manner. At the very least, our One Click Analysis™ serves as an excellent starting point for further in-depth analysis.

simulation and visualization

Quantify weight percentages and identify minor phases quickly and easily. JADE even automates these tasks as soon as you load your pattern.

cluster analysis

Sorting through lots of similar patterns is easier to find outliers with our extensive cluster toolset. Use cluster analysis to find emerging patterns across your data.

PDF Databases – Why We Are The Best!

More data, higher quality, more content, many types of solid state reference data
  • The world’s largest solid state collections of minerals, metals and alloys, polymers, active pharmaceuticals, and commercial materials
  • The world’s largest and most diverse (by formula) collection of inorganic structures
  • The world’s largest collection of modulated structures
  • Extensive bibliographic collections – thousands of journals, hundreds of thousands of authors
  • Target your identification; get more accurate results using materials classified by chemistry and application by using the PDF’s extensive subfile system
  • Standardized data, nomenclature, and structural classifications plus brand names, trade names, mineral names, zeolite names, and common names of commercial materials
