XRD database

  1. Apr 28, 2005 #1
    Hi, are there any online databases for the x-ray diffraction peaks of common and less common crystals?

    I'm not sure if there are any free large databases but there are programs for calculating diffraction patterns. for example powdercell can calculate and draw the powder diffraction pattern of a crystal for you. you have to specify the space group, lattice parameters and the content for the program and it'll do the rest.

    Yes, there is a database of xrd patterns. But it's not free, I can't remember the name off the top of my head. And googling it is going to be hard because I think it's "pdf.......something".

    it's idcc pdf (powder diffraction file) at idcc.com.

    I think you meant icdd.com ;)

    I stand corrected. Damn these abbreviations.

    "Long ago", the lab I worked in had a PDF database on the computers. They even had hardcopy publications of PDF plots/data. I'm not sure where they are found online...other than ICDD, which is what came up when I googled "pdf powder diffraction".
