We next turn to Appellants’ attempt to rebut the prima facie case of obviousness by evidence “of ‘unexpected results,’ i.e., to show that the claimed invention exhibits some superior property or advantage that person of ordinary skill in the relevant art would have found surprising or unexpected.” In re Soni, 54 F.3d 746, 750 (Fed. Cir. 1995). “[W]hen unexpected results are used as evidence of nonobviousness, the results must be shown to be unexpected compared with the closest prior art.” In re Baxter Travenol Labs., 952 F.2d 388, 392 (Fed. Cir. 1991). The unexpected results must be “different in kind and not merely in degree from the results of the prior art.” In re Applied Materials, Inc., 692 F.3d 1289, 1297 (Fed. Cir. 2012).
