          Appeal No. 1997-3915                                                        
          Application No. 08/640,572                                                  


          discussion in the references of the dopants and their                       
          concentrations, nor to any disclosure regarding the shifts in               
          resistance, the examiner has failed to establish a prima facie              
          case of obviousness.  Consequently, we cannot sustain the                   
          obviousness rejection of claim 1.                                           
                                      CONCLUSION                                      
               The decision of the examiner rejecting claim 1 under                   
          35 U.S.C.  103 is reversed.                                                
                                       REVERSED
