BEFORE THE BOARD OF PATENT APPEALS
Ex parte YUKIHISA TAKEUCHI, KOJI KIMURA and MASATO KOMAZAWA
Appeal No. 1997-3667
Before KRASS, RUGGIERO and FRAHM, Administrative Patent Judges.
FRAHM, Administrative Patent Judge.
ON REQUEST FOR REHEARING
In a Paper filed March 16, 2000, appellants request that we reconsider our decision of
February 16, 2000, wherein we affirmed the examiner’s decision rejecting claims 1 to 3, 6 to 8, 11, 12,
and 16 to 19. Specifically, appellants contest the decision as to the obviousness of the claimed
invention, a piezoelectric (P/E) actuator having a pre-sintered substrate which is laminated without the
use of adhesive, under 35 U.S.C. § 103 over the GB’ 647 reference and the JP ‘399 reference.
