“We have found illumin8 to be a unique and effective way to mine the Internet and premium content for solutions to technical problems and questions,” said Mary Poul, marketing manager from 3M Medical Systems, which has beta-tested illumin8. “The value for us is the unique search capability with the deep and broad content set. Further, doing the research without illumin8 would have taken weeks and I would have spent countless hours looking at data that was not relevant to my project."
To build illumin8, Elsevier has partnered with NetBase (formerly Accelovation; www.netbase.com), a provider of research software solutions that enable knowledge workers to mine the Internet and other online data to accelerate research. Major Fortune 500 companies in a variety of vertical industries already use NetBase technology to perform technology intelligence, tech scouting, competitive intelligence, market discovery, and more.How illumin8 Works
In addition to finding solutions from 5 billion web pages, millions of patents and Elsevier’s premium scientific content, illumin8 users will be able to easily access the full-text of Elsevier journals if they have an online subscription to the journal through ScienceDirect, the world’s largest online platform of science, technical and medical (STM) content.
“Research professionals now have a purpose-built productivity tool tailored to deliver solutions and insights in seconds. With illumin8, we are unlocking new value from Elsevier’s world class content and other sources,” said Rafael Sidi, vice president for product development of Elsevier’s Engineering & Technology Division. “R&D knowledge workers no longer need to spend hours, days or weeks sifting and reading through thousands of search results or full-text documents, and then manually synthesize results to find actionable answers. illumin8 is poised to transform the way companies innovate, find solutions to their R&D problems, collaborate and make key R&D investment decisions.”Fulfilling a Research Market Need

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
