[Pw_forum] Crystal Structure Page Temporarily Unavailable

I know many of the members of this list use the "Crystal Lattice 
Structure" page at


to look up Crystal Structures for a variety of elements and compounds.

Due to a reconstruction of computer services at NRL, this page is going 
to be unavailable for an undetermined period of time.  When it 
eventually does come back up, hopefully soon, we do not know if it will 
have the same address.  I'll post a message about the availability and 
address of the site as soon as we have it back online.

When we do get it back online, I hope (but don't promise) to be more 
active in adding structures, making corrections, and in general keeping 
it updated.

In the meantime, if you need the structure of a specific compound, I 
recommend the American Mineralogist Structure Database at


This is the first place I go to look up an unfamiliar compound.

My apologies for the inconvenience.
