The STN partners, Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) and FIZ Karlsruhe, are pleased to announce that Version One of the new STN platform is now available in beta for fixed fee customers. This is the first major milestone in a multi-year initiative to create the next generation of STN, the choice of patent experts.
The focus of this first version has been on developing the core search and retrieval system for new STN. This release combines the complete CAS REGISTRYSM and Chemical Abstracts content along with Thomson Reuters’ Derwent World Patents Index® and powerful new search features to support preliminary searches in these key areas:• Chemistry and general technology research
The STN Partners will incorporate additional content and functionality in the new architecture with ongoing versions. Full text patent content will be added throughout 2013.
“In October 2011, we announced that a new STN platform was under development and that a completely new STN will be phased into the market beginning in 2012. Consistent with the long tradition of STN keeping promises to customers, we are pleased to achieve this milestone of beta availability of the first version to our customers around the world who use STN on a fixed fee basis,” said Bob Massie, President of CAS.
"We are confident that patent search professionals will be very pleased with the industry-leading power and precision that we have built into the new STN,” said Sabine Brünger-Weilandt, President and CEO of FIZ Karlsruhe. “Our global advisory council has been instrumental in providing guidance and identifying how STN can meet needs not met by other search services.”
The STN Advisory Council members have been assisting in this large development effort, and confirm that CAS and FIZ Karlsruhe are building a state-of-the-art product for professionals:
“It has been amazing to see the new STN develop over the last two years - from a concept through the alpha version to the present beta version. This new STN will have important new features: No system limits! Simultaneous searching of Registry and Chemical Abstracts! Quick previews of references retrieved! I am looking forward to using new STN to increase my productivity and enhance management of my search projects.”-- Gayenel Rice, 3M
The current STN system, including STN Express® and the other STN products will continue to be available and fully supported throughout the development of the new platform.Related links

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
