New STN® Revolutionizes Patent Searching for Professionals

25.10.2011
Redesigned STN® retains what customers value most while phasing in advanced search and analysis capabilities beginning in 2012

The STN partners, Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) in the U.S. and FIZ Karlsruhe in Germany, are pleased to announce that a completely new STN will be phased into the market beginning in 2012.

The new platform will bring improved efficiency and usability at the expert level. Powerful new elements will include:

- Project-oriented workflow,
- Combined text and structure queries,
- Simultaneous query and results interaction,
- Real-time analysis of results, and
- virtually no system limits.
“While New STN will offer a wide range of advancements, it will also retain the unique values of STN that are trusted by patent search professionals today, including the STN command line, search precision, and high-quality content,” said Sabine Brünger-Weilandt, President and CEO of FIZ Karlsruhe.

“Our focus on patent professionals also encompasses the STN commitment to a secure and confidential research environment, as well as training and support by our scientists, which will be hallmarks of the new system,” said Robert J. Massie, President of CAS.

Teams of information technology professionals at FIZ Karlsruhe and CAS have designed and developed the new system with active guidance and insights from a global customer advisory council. “It is exciting to be part of the development process of the new STN platform,” stated Dr. Mark Harper, patent information analyst at Sanofi and member of the STN Advisory Council. “The new system will greatly improve the efficiency when searching STN, resulting from improved workflow support for patent experts.”

An alpha release to the STN Advisory Council is planned for later this year, and a release to global STN fixed fee customers will follow in 2012. The initial customer release will comprise the core databases of CAS and Thomson Reuters, a number of full-text patent files, and a suite of critical features and functions. Subsequent releases will be enhanced with additional databases and functionality.

The current STN system, including STN Express and STN on the Web, will continue to be available and fully supported throughout the development of the new platform.

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer ISE Develops Highly Compact, High Frequency DC/DC Converter for Aviation

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
