Factual Database
ICSD is the world’s largest database for fully identified inorganic crystal structures. It currently contains about 193,000 peer-reviewed data entries including their atomic coordinates. Updates are made twice a year (in spring and in fall) with data taken from scientific journals and other sources. Thanks to these many heterogeneous data sources the database has a wide coverage. ICSD is also updated retroactively. The oldest records date back to the year 1913 and contain information from publications by William Henry Bragg and his son.

Founded in 1916, the Optical Society of America (OSA) was organized to increase and diffuse the knowledge of optics, pure and applied. One of the major activities of the Society is the publication of peer-reviewed journals and books. OSA Publishing's Digital Library (formerly InfoBase) is its online repository including content from OSA's journals, proceedings and co-publications. Though access to current content is no longer licensed, access to the volumes 2007 - 2011 of OSA's journals and proceedings is still possible.
