We acknowledge that the lack of an antecedent basis for a claim term does not always render a claim indefinite.  Bose Corp. v. JBL, Inc., 274 F.3d 1354, 1359 (Fed. Cir. 2001). In this case, however, the term is unclear because the waveguide of claim 1 is not clearly limited to any particular geometry.

Inherent components of elements recited have antecedent basis in the recitation of the components themselves.  For example, retailers inherently sell goods, a number of sales inherently have an average value, goods or service inherently have values, and a number of purchases inherently have an amount.  See Bose Corp. v. JBL, Inc., 274 F.3d 1354, 1359, 61 USPQ2d 1216, 1218-19 (Fed. Cir 2001) (holding that recitation of "an ellipse" provided antecedent basis for "an ellipse having a major diameter" because "[t]here can be no dispute that mathematically an inherent characteristic of an ellipse is a major diameter"); see also MPEP 2173.05(e).

Furthermore, a lack of antecedent basis is not per se a reason for finding a claim indefinite. “In Bose Corp. v. JBL, Inc., 274 F.3d 1354, 1359 (Fed. Cir. 2001) the court held that despite the absence of explicit antecedent basis, ‘[i]f the scope of a claim would be reasonably ascertainable by those skilled in the art, then the claim is not indefinite.”’ Energizer Holdings Inc. v. International Trade Com’n, 435 F.3d 1366, 1370-71 (Fed. Cir. 2006). Antecedent basis can be present by implication. See Slimfold Mfg. Co. v. Kinkead Indus., Inc., 810 F.2d 1113, 1116 (Fed. Cir. 1987).

Because a dependent claim includes all of the limitations of the claim from which it depends, the Examiner’s conclusion that claim 9 is obvious is also a conclusion that claim 1 is obvious for the same reasons. See Ormco Corp. v. Align Tech., Inc., 498 F.3d 1307, 1319 (Fed. Cir. 2007) (when a dependent claim is “found to have been obvious, the broader claims . . . must also have been obvious”).
