With FAST ESP, ScienceDirect provides a more powerful search experience enabling users to access over eight million full-text scientific, technical and medical articles. FAST ESP was recently voted 'Top Search and Retrieval Technology' in Information Today's People's Choice Awards and is a finalist for the 2007 SIIA CODiE Awards.
Leveraging the impressive capabilities of FAST ESP, ScienceDirect will enable researchers to quickly find the most relevant information in their area of interest and expertise. Due to the enormous amount of information available via ScienceDirect, accurate, reliable and rapid search is critical to enabling users to leverage the information in a timely and efficient manner. ScienceDirect recently reached a major milestone by supporting its one-billionth full article download. Through the use of FAST ESP, ScienceDirect ensures the ability to continue to support this high volume of search and download activity.
FAST works with other Elsevier products and services, including Scopus (http://www.info.scopus.com/), the largest abstract and citation database of research literature and quality Web sources. Scopus has relied on FAST ESP for more than two years and has experienced positive response from its user community for its exceptional search experience and result relevance. By using FAST search technology, ScienceDirect and Scopus will be able to improve the interoperability of the sites and further streamline the user experience for professionals who use both resources for research.
"ScienceDirect and Scopus are dedicated to bringing researchers the high-quality information they need, when they need it," said Amanda Spiteri, marketing director, ScienceDirect. "The implementation of the FAST search platform offers users an easy to use, yet customizable way of retrieving and ranking information. The interoperability between ScienceDirect and Scopus will be enhanced greatly by using the same search technology."
"FAST works closely with forward-thinking organizations like ScienceDirect and Scopus to provide the best possible user experience for their customers," added Julie Ginches, senior director of corporate communications for FAST. "As a result, it comes as no surprise to us that these products are dominating their market sectors."

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.
Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...
The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.
Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.
An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.
Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...

Water molecules exist in two different forms with almost identical physical properties. For the first time, researchers have succeeded in separating the two forms to show that they can exhibit different chemical reactivities. These results were reported by researchers from the University of Basel and their colleagues in Hamburg in the scientific journal Nature Communications.
From a chemical perspective, water is a molecule in which a single oxygen atom is linked to two hydrogen atoms. It is less well known that water exists in two...
