Vibrational Data on the Materials Project
Today, we are proud to officially launch a large database of calculated vibrational properties of inorganic crystalline compounds, a collaboration between Université catholique de Louvain and the Materials Project as supported by the Fund for Scientific Research - FNRS Belgium, the Communauté française de Belgique, and the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Basic Energy Sciences. The calculated phonon spectra -- along with derived properties such as the vibrational entropy, the Helmholtz free energy, the specific heat, and the Born effective charges -- of over 1,500 materials are now available to the public.

You can read more about the methodology used in our calculations guide, check out our companion publication, and expect even more of our materials to have vibrational data in the near future.

We look forward to hearing your feedback.
