Landolt-Börnstein (LB) is a systematic collection of numerical data and functional relationships in physics, physical chemistry, biophysics, geophysics, astronomy, materials science, and technology. It is a valuable but often overlooked source of reliable physical data. Its full German title is Zahlenwerte und Funktionen aus Physik, Chemie, Astronomie, Geophysik und Technik. The 6th Edition was published from 1950 to 1980, and contains 22,500 pages in 28 volumes. It contains fundamental, well-tested information that is less likely to require revision. In 1961 the extensive New Series began publication, which updates and expands the base set with a focus on solid state materials and semiconductors. Over 400 volumes have been published so far.
