A perspective on materials databases

By Steve Freiman and John Rumble / January 13, 2011

It is widely accepted that convenient access to reliable materials property data is vital to the development of innovative components and devices, as well as for modeling and theoretical calculations of properties. We believe the field of ceramics can be used as a prototype for the issues facing the development and maintenance of a materials…
