Engineering Information's Compendex Database Adds 10 Millionth Record

03.08.2007
Today, Engineering Information announced the 10 millionth record has been added to the Compendex database and loaded on the Engineering Village discovery platform. Compendex is the definitive bibliographic database covering published engineering literature, which is used by professional engineers, engineering students, researchers and information professionals worldwide.

Since its creation in 1969, Compendex has offered the broadest coverage of significant engineering literature available. Over the past 38 years, the database has expanded its coverage steadily as the volume of published engineering literature has grown. In 2006 alone, over 650,000 new records were added to the Compendex database. Records are carefully selected and indexed to ensure a breadth of literature upon which researchers can rely. Compendex now covers over 5,600 serial sources each year, originating from more than 55 countries.

The 10 millionth article added to Compendex on the Engineering Village discovery platform is titled “Hydrothermal synthesis of hydroxyapatite powders using alkyl ammonium bromides as surfactants.” The article is authored by a team of researchers led by Hyun-Jung Park from the Department of Ceramics Building Materials at the Korea Institute of Ceramic Engineering and Technology and appears in the journal Key Engineering Materials, volume 342-343, 2007.

“We are extremely proud that the Compendex database continues to keep pace with the ever-growing body of published literature in engineering,” explains Ross Graber, Engineering Information’s Director of Marketing. “Even as Compendex reaches the 10 million record milestone, its records continue to be selected and indexed to provide engineering students and professionals with an invaluable tool for their research. Compendex is now more widely used and trusted as a comprehensive source of quality, engineering-specific literature than ever.”

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
