The Examiner has not rationally explained how Metzler "would have commended itself to an inventor's attention in considering [the] problem[s]" of Sekiguchi or vice versa. Innovention Toys LLC v. MGA Entertainment Inc., 637 F.3d 1314, 1321 (Fed. Cir. 2011); see id. at 1322—23 (finding sufficient basis for combining references that share the "same purpose," "goal," or "objective"). Moreover, for the reasons recited by the Appellant, App. Br. 5—6, we find that Sekiguchi's disclosure of allowing light to pass through multiple substrate layers teaches away from the combination relied upon by the Examiner. see, e.g., In re Gurley, 27 F.3d 551, 553 (Fed. Cir. 1994) (reference teaches away from combination "when a person of ordinary skill, upon reading the reference . . would be discouraged from following the path set out in the reference").

Gurley, In re, 27 F.3d 551, 31 USPQ2d 1130 (Fed. Cir. 1994) 2123 2145
