The Encyclopedia will display computed materials properties, based on millions of calculations that have been performed worldwide. Whenever new data will be available - concerning additional calculations, new materials or novel methodology - the NOMAD Encyclopedia will make them visible to the outside world.
The grapical user interface provides a materials-oriented view on the NOMAD Archive. It displays all kinds of properties that have been calculated by one ore more authors with one or the other method or code. These comprise structural features and mechanical behavior, as much as thermal properties, electronic structure, transport characteristics and response to light and other excitations. You may find our how one material's properties depend on its geometry and how another system expands with temperature. You may explore how the results obtained with one density functional compare to another one. Many of these features are implemented already, many more will come successively.
