o 1 , 12. 24, 27, 34, 36, 40, 42, 46, 55, 57, 58, 59, 64, 69, 77, 84, 86, 
71, 93, 96, 103, 109, 123, 130, 135, 137, 139, 140, 361, 373, 374, 
379, 383, 386, 438, 496, 497, 535, 543. 

Claim 510 has been amended to add after the last word of the claim, "and" the 
element " (c) a source of an electric current to flow in the superconductor 
element." This is the last element of claim 51 1 . 

These changes do not raise new issues and do not require any additional 
searching. And, these changes place the claims in better condition for appeal 
since typographical errors are corrected and claims have been amended to use 
allowed claim terminology. These changes do not alter the meaning of the 
claims and do not surrender any equivalents. 

Dependent claims 544 to 551 added in the Twelfth Supplementary Response 
do not raise new issues and do not require any additional searching since these 
claims recite terminology allowed in claims : 330, 335, 336, 346 and 358.
