The AFLOW standard library of crystallographic prototypes provides a complete description of each structure, including formulas for the primitive vectors, basis vectors, and AFLOW commands to generate the standardized cells.

Electronic structure geometry files are available to download in both CIF and POSCAR formats.

Number of prototypes in the library: 590

Search prototypes via space group, Pearson symbol, Strukturbericht designation, and chemical symbols.


Included similar compounds/elements to the library search functionality

Added CIF format to the prototype generator

Added prototypes from part 2 of the library (302 new prototypes)
