ACerS-NIST Phase Equilibria Diagrams PC Database 4.2: Now on USB



84 years of critically evaluated research

now in the palm of your hand

Version 4.2 adds 1,133 new diagrams for a total of 27,600 critically evaluated figures for ceramics and glass researchers


The American Ceramic Society published its first issue of “Phase Diagrams for Ceramacists” in the October 1933 issue of the Journal of The American Ceramic Society. It featured 178 diagrams with supporting explanatory material. Ceramic researchers then recognized the diagrams’ great value in saving time and money in research. Fast forward 84 years and researchers still count on ACerS-NIST Phase Equilibria Diagrams to provide the most trusted, comprehensive collection of critically evaluated phase diagrams for ceramic and inorganic systems for understanding temperature-dependent materials interactions — now with eight decades of research on one portable USB drive.


What’s new with Phase 4.2?

The Phase Version 4.2 USB drive features commentaries and 27,600 diagrams for non-organic systems all able to be printed as high-quality PDF files. In addition to adding 544 new entries and 1133 new diagrams, the comprehensive, searchable PC Phase 4.2 product includes all the information printed in the 21 hard‐copy volumes as well as “virtual” Volumes 15, 16, special‐Volume P (phosphorus‐containing) as well as all other special‐issue topical volumes, and Volumes 17-20. And yes, that includes those original 178 diagrams available from 1933.


The new content includes experimental and calculated data for a wide range of inorganic material type including:

⇒ Oxides and mixed systems with oxides ⇒ Chalcogenides (sulfides, selenides, tellurides) ⇒ Pnictides (N, P, As, Sb, Bi)
⇒ Actinides (U, Pu, Th) and actinide‐surrogates (Ce) ⇒ Oxy‐cation systems (e.g. molybdates, vanadates) ⇒ Semiconductors (Si, Ge, Sn)
⇒ Group 3 systems (B, Al, Ga, In, Tl) ⇒ Salts including mixed systems with salts  


Phase 4.2 includes:

  • 27,600 phase diagrams with full commentary text display, including 1,133 new phase diagrams and 544 new entries

  • Free download of the PED Editor, a graphics digitization program that creates high-resolution, saveable and printable PDFs

  • Help icons at each user-input location

  • Keyword search capability of all 19,188 PED entries, allowing users to associate material systems with potential applications mentioned in the text 

  • All 27,600 diagrams are PDF files for high-resolution printing

  • Now on USB and available for purchase

“…an invaluable resource for materials scientists and engineers.”

“Phase diagrams are critical to understanding stability, developing processing procedures and identifying new materials. Having a compilation of the available phase equilibrium data that are reviewed and searchable is an invaluable resource for materials scientists and engineers.”

— Jeffrey W. Fergus, Ph.D., PE
