In-depth characterization and understanding of materials concern knowledge of their various properties. This includes structural features, mechanical and thermal behaviour, electronic and magnetic properties, the response to light, and more.
The NOMAD Encyclopedia is a web-based public infrastructure that provides this materials-oriented view on the NOMAD Repository & Archive. Whatever property of a given material has been computed, is easily accessible through a user-friendly graphical user interface (GUI). Having all this information in one place gives us an impression about the wealth of available materials data and allows for comparing even very different systems in terms of certain features.
