First Release of the new Windows-based ICSD version on CD ROM (2002/1)

DGK-News Date: 6. August 2002

The new CD ROM with a Windows-based graphical user interface to Inorganic Crystal Structure Database is immediately available. ICSD contains records of all inorganic crystal structures, with atomic coordinates, published since 1915. The data base contains 62.383 structures as of July 2002.

This new software product is tabular in design and allows for searching in five general categories: Chemistry, Crystal Data, Reduced Cell, Symmetry and Reference Data. The software includes enhanced features for the characterization of materials based on lattice search and chemistry search modules, and provides three-dimensional visualization and powder pattern simulation for inorganic structures.

The product is developed jointly by Fachinformationszentrum Karlsruhe, Germany and the National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, U.S. A demo version is available, too.
