3 Notice This presentation gives an overview of features and
capabilities found in the Powder Diffraction File (PDF), specifically PDF-4+ Release 2006. This presentation represents a small portion of the capabilities in the database. The presentation focuses on the database and not on the capabilities of the database when combined with the world’s leading data analysis programs. The database itself contains over 500 pages of help file documentation. This includes definitions and terms of the classifications and calculations used in the database.

4 Fundamentals

5 PDF-4+ Basic Capabilities
PDF-4+ contains 254,873 entries. Entries contain > 85 data fields, some fields such as d, I, h,k,l and atomic parameters may contain dozens to hundreds of data points. There are 65 different data display options. There are 44 search options. Display and search options can be combined and permuted using a JAVA interface. This results in nearly endless combinations for data display and analysis, only a few of which are described here.

6 Powder Diffraction File (PDF)
PDF Databases are designed to work with most commercial diffraction analysis software packages. The ICDD works with software distributors so that the PDF seamlessly interfaces to their software. Many features in the database are specifically designed for distributor use. A list of compatible software and distributors can be found here.

8 Design & Purpose

9 All PDF Databases are designed for rapid material identification
All PDF Databases are designed for rapid material identification. This differentiates a PDF database from all other databases of crystallographic or physical property data. If you are working on a known material another database may be more appropriate for your work.

10 Powder Diffraction File
Rapid Material Identification with the PDF The database is designed to use input data and match it to candidate reference materials. Most matching is done by comparing sets of d-spacing and Intensities, however it can also be done by chemistry, properties, structural and crystallographic classifications – using dozens of different searches. All data are converted to a standardized format for rapid search. There are many embedded indexes facilitating searches. Data entries are extensively cross referenced to other entries and to physical and chemical measurements. Data are extensively classified by chemical and structural types; each classification can be searched.

11 Sources of Data

12 The Powder Diffraction File PDF-4+ Database
Data Sources for the Database 1) Publications, journals, scientific periodicals and theses 2) ICDD Grants for new materials (~60 annual grants) 3) Data collections donated by companies or individuals 4) Data from other Database organizations that they collect from scientific publications The Powder Diffraction File contains a compilation of data from 5 global databases. PDF-4+ uses 4 database sources.

13 PDF Databases – Continuous growth and change
Data on new materials are being constantly collected and published by laboratories around the world so the PDF database continually grows. With time, data quality has steadily improved in both accuracy and precision. (Better hardware, optics, software and computational power as a function of time). This leads to improved accuracy in the database and the diffraction method of analysis. A major function of the ICDD editorial system is to evaluate quality and standardize data that has been collected by global sources over decades of time. The quality evaluations and standardization processes are also updated continually and the entire database gets reviewed each time.

14 Powder Diffraction File – Database Collaborators
Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) ICSD NIST Linus Pauling File (LPF)

15 Each PDF database contains data from several database sources
254,873 Entries PDF-4/ Organics 312,355 Entries Release 2007 PDF-2 186,107 Entries ICDD, NIST, ICSD + LPF ICDD-organics + CSD ICDD, NIST, ICSD

16 PDF-4+ The PDF-4+ and its subset, PDF-4/Minerals, are the only PDF databases that contains data from the Linus Pauling File (LPF). The LPF is currently the largest single global source of inorganic atomic coordinates and crystallographic parameters. It is also a large source of data on inorganic materials, many with unique compositions. This data is added to inorganic materials data from ICDD, NIST and ICSD to form the comprehensive data collection in PDF-4+.

17 500,000 Material Data Sets and Growing
500,000 Material Data Sets and Growing! Data from global sources – collected, translated, edited and standardized PDF-4/ Organics 60 Years PDF-4+

64 Combining Tools – Analyzing Polymorphs

65 Example – Examining the Polymorphs of SiO2
1 1 Execute a Search - Primary patterns, star quality, ambient conditions, 2 elements, formula SiO2

66 Display the results 2 37 star quality, primary patterns Search Summary

67 Customize the results Why are there so many primary star patterns for SiO2? To study this, customize the display by selecting preferences. 3

68 Customized results 4 SiO2 polymorphs – differences in Mineral Name, Common Names, Space Groups, Unit Cell Volumes, Pearson Symbols.

69 Analyze SiO2 polymorphs
4 Highlight a selection of data entries in the results, then right click to provide a menu of options. CTRL and Shift Key can both be used to highlight user specific entries. From the menu, diffraction pattern is selected 5

70 Polymorphs of SiO2 All eight highlighted entries are simultaneously plotted. The data clearly show that these are polymorphic materials with different characteristic diffraction patterns for each polymorph.

71 Customize the results Why are there multiple primary star quality patterns for same polymorph? To study this, use the prior results (37 SiO2 primary star patterns) and look at entries with the same space group, Pearson symbol and reduced cell volume. Three entries for Stishovite - why?

72 Three entries for Stishovite - why? Examine the Comments!
Single Crystal Synthetic Powder Mineral High quality data on three different specimens taken by three different Laboratories. Mineralogists typically prefer known minerals, chemists may prefer high purity synthetic or single crystal – if different in source or properties ICDD editors will keep all entries. Examine properties Slight difference in density, I/Ic

73 SiO2 Why are there 37 primary, star patterns?
Answer Polymorphs, a primary pattern is selected for each different polymorphic form (~24 different polymorphs). Different physical properties – the same polymorph may have slightly different physical properties or chemistry (i.e. due to calcination). This is especially common in minerals from different geographic localities. Difference source, for example mineral or synthetic, powder or single crystal.
