With China having grown into one of the world’s major patenting countries, it becomes extremely important for all companies involved in R&D to keep an eye on the developments in Asia and at the same time to protect their products and inventions in this region accordingly.
At present, the file comprises over 4.5 million records and more than 3.8 million images from 1985 onwards. More than 10,000 new documents are added to the file each week. Each database record contains all documents published for one application. Online thesauri for the International Patent Classification (/IPC) and the European Patent Classification (/EPC) are searchable. Abstracts are initially machine translated and replaced three months later by human translated text; descriptions and claims are machine translated.
The unique Numeric Property Search feature, developed by FIZ Karlsruhe and already used in other full-text patent files on STN, is also available in CNFULL. It enables users to search the numeric values of over 30 physical and chemical properties in almost 400 unit variants within the full text of all documents and thus significantly enhances the search precision in many cases. Searchable properties and their respective base units comprise for example /SAR (Surface Area, m²), /CMOL (Molar Concentration, mol/L), /DEN (Mass Density, kg/m³), or /VOL (Volume, m³).CNFULL is a valuable addition to STN’s wide range of full-text patent databases from all over the world. It shows once more that FIZ Karlsruhe provides excellent services to science and business, as confirmed recently by an international auditing group. 35 years after its foundation, FIZ Karlsruhe is dedicated to its motto “Advancing Science”, against which its products and services are measured.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
