Inorganic Crystal Structure Database (ICSD)

ICSD is a database of inorganic crystal structure data. It was founded in 1978 by G.Bergerhoff (University of Bonn) and I.D.Brown (University of McMaster, Canada). It is now produced by the Fachinformationszentrum Karlsruhe in Europe and the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology. It seeks to contain information on all inorganic crystal structures published since 1913, including pure elements, minerals, metals, and intermetallic compounds (with atomic coordinates). ICSD contains 103,679 entries as of mid-2008 and is updated twice a year.

A Windows-based PC version has been developed in co-operation with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and an internet version in co-operation with the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) Grenoble.
