The Materials Project is a open science initiative that makes available a huge database of computed materials properties for all materials researchers. By computing properties of all known materials, the Materials Project aims to remove guesswork from materials design in a variety of applications. Experimental research can be targeted to the most promising compounds from computational data sets. Researchers will be able to data-mine scientific trends in materials properties.
