Related Software Innovation Tool: The Materials Data Bank (MDB) archives the 3D coordinates and chemical species of individual atoms in materials without assuming crystallinity determined by atomic electron tomography. The databank is designed to provide useful resources for research and education in studying the 3D atomic arrangements and associated material properties arising from non-crystalline structures, such as point defects, dislocations, grain boundaries, stacking faults and disorders.
