This is public documentation for the Materials Project (MP). The Materials Project is a decade-long effort from the Department of Energy to pre-compute properties of "materials" and make this data publicly available, with the intent of accelerating the process of materials discovery. In this context, a material means an inorganic crystal (like silicon), and possible applications are vast, but might include better batteries, solar energy, water splitting, optoelectronics, catalysts and more.
