Laminated baking mold
Patent No. 9,237,752
A laminated baking mold material includes a food contact layer and an exterior layer. The food contact layer serves as a functional layer, and may include an aluminum foil. The exterior layer may include a paper layer, and may be printed. The laminated baking mold may be formed into self-supporting baking molds or pan-supported baking liners. The functional barrier prevents migration of ink from an exterior surface of the baking mold or liner into a baked product or the permeation of grease or moisture from the baked product to the exterior layer preventing a degradation of a printing thereon and allowing for deep, opaque, and vibrant colors and patterns.

System for measuring visual fixation disparity
Patent No. 9,237,843
There is disclosed herein a system for measuring visual fixation disparity comprising a display apparatus for presenting stereoscopic visual content to a patient. A sensing apparatus tracks eye movement of the patient. A controller controls the display apparatus to stereoscopically display a central image target alternately to a left eye and a right eye of the patient and tracking eye movement for a period of time as the central image target is alternated between the left eye and the right eye, and incrementally relocating the central image target left and right images until the patient perceives the left and right images to be physically coincident.
