This is the completely new PHP-MySQL Inorganic Crystal Structure Database (ICSD-for-WWW). Unlicensed users only have access to a demonstration version, with a 3592 structure subset of the 93720 inorganic structures in release 2006-2. To get started, just enter eg Y Ba2 Cu3 O in the elements box and click Search. (Click on the titles of the input boxes for help). If you are unfamiliar with ICSD-for-WWW, you may want to first look at some Pretty pictures of typical structures and a WWW Flash movie of all the things you can do.
Login or use the Demo (ICSD-for-WWW works with Win95
up to Mac-OSX & Linux, but not with old browsers).
In the browser options, prefer to open new pages in a new window, not a new tab.
