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: 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...
