SpringerMaterials 360°

Celebrating the birthdays of Landolt (190) and Börnstein (170)

In 1883, Professors Hans Landolt and Richard Börnstein published the first volume of what would soon become known as the prestigious Landolt-Börnstein book series. Published between 1961 and 2018, the “New” Landolt-Börnstein Series includes over 500 volumes with more than 250,000 documents written by more than 1,000 expert authors and editors and is the foundation of SpringerMaterials.

The Landolt-Börnstein series continues to be a valuable resource known to scientists simply as "The Landolt-Börnstein" or "The LB" and, SpringerMaterials has become one of the largest, most trusted and comprehensive materials science databases in the world, providing cutting-edge material property data to solve today's research problems. Explore now an overview of SpringerMaterials 360° to learn more about the Landolt-Börnstein series, materials content & properties, developments for the future and, how SpringerMaterials can help your researchers.
