Surface energy data


#1

Is it possible to have information about the surface energy of different facets of a crystal? (for example Wulff construction plots or just experimental data)


#2

The calculated surface energies are currently available from elemental compounds, as reported in this paper:

When logged in, you can load the Materials Explorer app (the default app) and search for materials with surface properties (calculated energies and Wulff construction plots, as well as work functions) by clicking “Has properties” in the filter sidebar and selecting the “Surface” box:

Thank you for the information
