The Computational 2D Materials Database (C2DB) is a highly curated open database organising a wealth of computed properties for more than 4000 atomically thin two-dimensional (2D) materials. Here we report on new materials and properties that were added to the database since its first release in 2018. The set of new materials comprise several hundred monolayers exfoliated from experimentally known layered bulk materials, (homo)bilayers in various stacking configurations, native point defects in… 
A dataset of 175k stable and metastable materials calculated with the PBEsol and SCAN functionals

A workflow for materials design integrating an inverse design approach and a Bayesian inference optimization is proposed and the prediction of SS prototypes for spintronic applications is used as an illustrative example of the proposed workflow.
Bandgap of two-dimensional materials: Thorough assessment of modern exchange-correlation functionals.
It is shown that the GLLB-SC potential and mTASK functional provide the bandgaps that are the closest to G0W0, and the local MBJ potential has a pretty good accuracy that is similar to the accuracy of the more expensive hybrid functional HSE06.
