The
Materials
Project

Harnessing the power of supercomputing and state of the art electronic structure methods, the Materials Project provides open web-based access to computed information on known and predicted materials as well as powerful analysis tools to inspire and design novel materials.

June 3, 2021: Materials Project Virtual Workshop August 10th-12th

See the announcement here. Limited to 100 participants. We hope you can join us!

May 13, 2021: Database Release V2021.03.13 With New Formation Energy Correction Scheme

This release includes no new data but does change the way we correct formation energies. This reduces the overall error in formation energies in Materials Project by 7% when compared to experiment. The old correction scheme remains available for those who need to use it. More info in our release logs.

March 22, 2021: Supplemental Database Release V2021.03.22

This release updates some older materials with new calculations, and adjusts our rules for deprecating older calculations. It does not contain any new materials. Thanks to the new calculations many materials that were previously deprecated are now accessible again. This release is in preparation for a switch to our new compatibility scheme which will improve our predictions of formation energy.

Feb. 8, 2021: Supplemental Database Release V2021.02.08

This release updates some older materials with new calculations, and adjusts our rules for deprecating older calculations. It does not contain any new materials.

Sept. 8, 2020: Supplemental Database Release V2020.09.08

This release addresses issues identified with the formation energies of a minority of materials. A second supplemental release is planned. More info in our release logs.
