The Materials Data Facility (MDF) is a scalable repository where materials scientists can publish, preserve, and share research data. The repository provides a focal point for the materials community, enabling publication and discovery of materials data of all sizes.

MDF is a pilot project funded by NIST, and serves as the first pilot community of the National Data Service.
