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.

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.
Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
