aNANt Logo

aNANt is an initiative of Materials Theory and Simulations Group, Materials Research Center, Indian Institute of Science Bangalore to develop and host an open-access online repository of functional materials.

aNANt database shares the structures and electronic properties of computationally designed two-dimensional layered materials in a single platform. Currently, it hosts over 23,000 materials data.

The database contains the optimized structure and electronic properties such as lattice constant and band gap, calculated at the Perdew-Burke-Ernzerhof (PBE) level using density functional theory (DFT).
