“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

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
