How to Download and Install ICDD PDF-4+ Database

The ICDD PDF-4+ database is a comprehensive collection of powder diffraction data for identification and quantification of crystalline materials. It features digitized patterns, molecular graphics, atomic coordinates, and data mining software. It also includes SIeve+, a search-indexing software that allows users to perform phase identification using their own diffraction data.

If you want to download and install the ICDD PDF-4+ database on your computer, you need to follow these steps:

  • Visit the ICDD website at and purchase a license for PDF-4+ and SIeve+ (sold separately). You can also request a quote or a demo version of the database.

  • After purchasing the license, you will receive an email with a link to download the main installation package PDF-4+Web2021.exe (or PDF-4+Web2022.exe for the latest release).

  • Run the installation package as an administrator and follow the instructions on the screen. You will need to enter your license number and password during the installation process.

  • After the installation is complete, you can launch the PDF-4+/Web software using any account with user privileges. You can use the desktop shortcut "ICDD PDF-4+/Web 2021" (or "ICDD PDF-4+/Web 2022" for the latest release) or the start menu shortcut located under "All Programs", then "ICDD PDF-4+/Web 2021" (or "ICDD PDF-4+/Web 2022").

  • To stop the software, exit the PDF-4+/Web software and close the ICDD Communicator.

For more information, please refer to the ReadMe document that comes with the installation package or contact for assistance.The ICDD PDF-4+ database is not only a powerful tool for phase identification, but also a rich source of information for various applications in materials science. Some of the features of PDF-4+ that make it stand out from other databases are:

  • Digitized patterns: PDF-4+ contains over 1.1 million digitized patterns that can be used for comparison with experimental data. The digitized patterns are derived from experimental and calculated sources, and cover a wide range of wavelengths, temperatures, pressures, and compositions.

  • Molecular graphics: PDF-4+ provides 3D molecular graphics for over 400,000 entries, allowing users to visualize the structure and symmetry of the materials. The molecular graphics can be rotated, zoomed, measured, and exported as images or videos.

  • Atomic coordinates: PDF-4+ includes atomic coordinates for over 500,000 entries, enabling users to perform structural analysis and refinement using third-party software. The atomic coordinates are available in CIF format and can be downloaded or copied to the clipboard.

  • Data mining software: PDF-4+ comes with integrated data mining software that allows users to explore the database and extract useful information. Users can perform advanced searches using various criteria, such as elements, formula, crystal system, space group, cell parameters, properties, references, and more. Users can also create custom subfiles and export the results as tables or graphs.

  • SIeve+: PDF-4+ includes SIeve+, a search-indexing software that enables users to perform phase identification using their own diffraction data. SIeve+ can import data from various formats and instruments, and compare it with the PDF-4+ database using different algorithms and filters. SIeve+ can also generate reports and charts to display the identification results.

With these features and more, PDF-4+ is a valuable resource for researchers and professionals who work with crystalline materials. To learn more about PDF-4+, please visit or contact e0e6b7cb5c
