Moreover, even if an element which Maglich desires to detect can have the same decay rate as an interfering element, the Appellants do not challenge the Examiner’s finding that Maglich uses energy line strength ratios of at least one interfering elements’ induced gamma rays to calculate an amount of induced gamma rays emitted by the at least one interfering element at an energy line of interest associated with at least one element of interest (final rejection mailed Nov. 25, 2011, pp. 2-3, 5). Hence, we accept that finding as fact. See In re Kunzmann, 326 F.2d 424, 425 n.3 (CCPA 1964).
