ready NOMAD Laboratory

Abbreviation:NOMAD LAB

General Information
The NOMAD Laboratory hosts, organizes and shares materials data. It contains ab initio electronic-structure data from density-functional theory and methods beyond. NOMAD enables the confirmatory analysis of materials data, their reuse, and repurposing. It makes scientific data citable as one can request digital objective identifiers (DOI's). NOMAD keeps scientific data for at least 10 years for free.
