The International Centre for Diffraction Data® (ICDD®) is a non-profit scientific organization dedicated to collecting, editing, publishing, and distributing powder diffraction data for the identification of crystalline materials. The membership of the ICDD consists of worldwide representation from academe, government, and industry.
The International Centre for Diffraction Data will continue to develop tools and support the education required for materials analyses of tomorrow.
The International Centre for Diffraction Data will continue to be the world center for quality diffraction and related data to meet the needs of the technical community. ICDD promotes the application of materials characterization methods in science and technology by providing forums for the exchange of ideas and information.
ICDD’s Board of Directors awarded Dr. Thomas Blanton the Distinguished Fellow Award at the 2013 ICDD Spring Meetings. This award is given to a member who has given dedicated and meritorious service to the ICDD.
