While the disclosure in Fujiyama on which the Examiner relies might suffice for anticipation of a claim involving the ultrasonic generation of bubbles in a cleaning process, the rejection is for obviousness. It is generally not logical to base obviousness on combinations of teachings that lead to the frustration or inoperability of the teachings of a reference. Cf. In re Gordon, 733 F.2d 900, 902 (Fed. Cir. 1984) (“if the French apparatus were turned upside down, it would be rendered inoperable for its intended purpose. . . In effect, French teaches away from the board’s proposed modification.”)

Gordon, In re, 733 F.2d 900, 221 USPQ 1125 (Fed. Cir. 1984) 2143.01 2144.08
