The open materials database is meant as a research database/toolset to aid in materials design. It is currently under construction at this address:

The Open Materials Database is built using a the High-Throughput Toolkit (httk). It is a freely available open source framework for preparing and running calculations, analyzing the results and store them in a global and/or in a personalized database. Httk documentation and downloads are available here:
