REMARKS 

The Examiner states at page 4 in the Rejection mailed 7/28/04 which is incorporated into 
the final rejection of 10/20/05: 

"The terms "layer-type", "perovskite-Uke", "rare-earth-like" and "near-rare earth" 
(claim 65) are vague and confusing. See MPEP 2173.05. The question arises: 
What is meant by these terms? Hie terms "layer-type" and "perovskite-like" are 
unclear because the "type" or "like" terms are deemed to be indefinite. Terms 
such as "like", "similar", and "type" are indefinite* Additionally, the newly added 
claims terminology "comprising a rare-eaith characteristic", "comprising a layer 
characteristic" and "comprising a perovskite characteristic" are considered 
indefinite. The terms are considered identical in scope to the previously rejected 
terminology and are indefinite for the same reasons." 



Applicants respectfully disagree. Since applicants have shown that the USPTO routinely 
issues patents with claims having elements containing the language as "like," "similar" and 
"type," these terms are not only not considered per se indefinite but are accepted as definite by 
the USPTO. 

The undersigned attorney searched the term "like" in the claim field the USPTO patent 
search webpage http://patft.uspto.gov/netahtml/PTO/search-adv.htm for patents issued by current 
Examiner Kopec and by former Examiner McGinty, who is the current Supervisory Patent 
Examiner of the present application. Examiner McGinty was the Examiner of record of the 
parent application of the parent application and was the Examiner of record of the present 
application from the filing date June 7, 1995 until at least July 30, 1998 which was the last paper 
in the record of the current application signed by then Examiner McGinty. 

TABLE 1 below lists the patents allowed by current Examiner Kopec showing the patent 
number and the claim term that includes the term "like". PATENT AND CLAIM LIST 1 
below lists a representative claim, copied from the USPTO website, from each of the patents 
allowed by current Examiner Kopec showing the patent number and the representative claim 
using the claim term that includes the term "like." The terms with "like" are in bold, italic, 
underlined text, to be readily identified in the claim. In addition TABLE 1 list patents allowed 
by current Examiner Kopec with claims containing the term "perovskite type". PATENT AND 
CLAIM LIST 1 list corresponding representative claims. There are other patents allowed by 
Examiner Kopec with claims containing the term "type" which are not listed here.

Examiner McGinty with claims containing the term "perovskite-type." PATENT AND CLAIM 
LIST 2 list with the claims containing the term "perovskite type" corresponding to the 
representative claims. There are other patents allowed by Examiner McGinty with claims 
containing the term "type" that are not listed here. 

It has been found that current Examiner Kopec has allowed 19 US patents with the term 
"like" in the claims. Those terms are: ''perovskite-like" "spike-like", "plate-like", "stack-like", 
"rubber-like", "glass-like carbon", "needle-like", "comb-like", "flake-like carbon**, "glass-like 
structure", "gel-like properties", "paste-like ceramic material", "azeotrope-like composition", 
and "like blood deposits." It has also been found that current Examiner Kopec has allowed four 
patents with the claim term "perovskite type". 

It has been found that Supervisory Examiner McGinty has allowed 49 patents with the 
terms "stalk-like", "azeotrope-Hke", "wax-like", "dough-like", "floc-like", * VeWike", "chain- 
like", "amine-like", "clay-like", "fiber-like", "cloth-like", and "shell-like." It has also been 
found that Supervisory Examiner McGinty has allowed two patents with the claim term 
"perovskite-type. " 

Applicants respectfully request Examiner Kopec to reconsider the rejection of applicants' 
claim terms "perovskite-like" and "perovskite-type" as being indefinite in view of the fact that 
Examiner Kopec has allowed three patents with the term "perovskite-like" in the claims and has 
allowed four patents with the term "perovskite type" in the claims. These patents allowed by 
Examiner Kopec are directed to the same field as that of the present application "ceramic 
materials." Applicants respectfully request Examiner Kopec to reconsider the rejection of 
applicants claim terms "perovskite-like" and "perovskite-type" in view of the fact that Examiner 
Kopec found these terms definite in these seven issued patents.
