Secure competitive advantage in India – STN® now offers comprehensive Indian patent information

INFULL adds the full-text of Indian patent applications and granted patents to STN / Full-texts in English language / to be presented at this year’s PATINFO from June 5-7, 2013 in Ilmenau, Germany

India is an important future market. As with all emerging markets, there are risks involved, for example, for companies doing research and development. For such companies it is a crucial factor to have their intellectual property protected. Therefore, it is of vital importance that these risks be minimized by means of targeted searches and first-class information on patents and patent applications.

INFULL, the new Indian full-text patent file offered by FIZ Karlsruhe on STN International, enables researchers, developers, and patent specialists to access comprehensive patent information from India. The information spectrum of INFULL comprises the state of the art, patentability, freedom to operate, and licensing possibilities. Searches on infringements of own patents by third parties are also possible.

“The new database offers access to the Indian patent landscape. This important enhancement of STN secures the competitive advantages of our customers on an even broader basis,” says Dr. Rainer Stuike-Prill, Vice President Marketing & Sales at FIZ Karlsruhe.

At present, the INFULL file contains over 444,000 records in English language and more than 120,000 images from 1912 onwards. About 500 documents are published each week. The records of the database contain bibliographic data, various patent classifications including the new CPC codes, abstracts, and the full text of descriptions and claims. New documents are available about one week after publication with the complete content.

INFULL will be presented at this year’s PATINFO (held on June 5-7, 2013 in
Ilmenau, Germany) together with other important STN databases and features, including the new STN platform, precise CPC searching in patent databases, Asian full-text patent files, and many more. A special workshop will be dedicated to patent full-text databases on STN and the advantages of combined searches in full-text and bibliographic value-added patent files on STN (CAplus, DWPI, etc.).
About STN International
STN® International (, the premium online service in science and patent information, provides access to more than 150 databases from renowned producers.

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
