Welcome to ELATE, the online tool for analysis of elastic tensors, developed by Romain Gaillac and François-Xavier Coudert at CNRS /
If you use the software in published results (paper, conference, etc.), please cite the corresponding paper (J. Phys. Condens. Matter, 2016, 28, 275201) and give the website URL.
ELATE is open source software. Any queries or comments are welcome at
Input: elastic tensor (also called stiffness matrix)
Paste here your 6×6 symmetric matrix of elastic constants, either in full or in triangular form (upper or lower):
Integration with Materials Project
You can use ELATE to analyze and visualize the elastic properties of any material from the Materials Project for which they are available. In the query box below, you can use a reference number from the Materials Project (mp-2133), a chemical formula (ZnO), or a chemical system (Li-Fe-O).
