|PCT/US2013/025519||EMPIRE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT LLC||WAN, Feng|
Methods and systems for detecting alignment of a substrate during a printing process are described. In an embodiment, a printing apparatus may comprise an apparatus polarization area. A substrate may be configured with a substrate polarization area. The substrate may be arranged on the printing apparatus during printing such that the substrate polarization area overlaps the apparatus polarization area to form an alignment area. During printing, light may be radiated onto the alignment area to generate polarized light. The polarized light may be received by a polarized light receiving device. Characteristics of the light received by the polarized light receiving device may be monitored for variations. The variations may indicate that the substrate is not properly aligned for printing on the printing apparatus.

|PCT/US2013/025400||SKYFUEL, INC.||GEE, Randall C.|
Solar/gas hybrid concentrating solar power (CSP) systems and methods of using the CSP systems are described. The hybrid CSP systems are highly efficient due, at least in part, to a solar segment comprising a first heat transfer fluid and a thermal storage segment comprising a second heat transfer fluid. The second heat transfer fluid heat exchanges with a steam segment to produce steam that drives a steam turbine. Thus, the solar and thermal segments perform the "heavy lifting" of producing steam from water. Once the steam is produced, it enters a superheater of the steam segment. The superheater, which does not heat exchange directly with the thermal storage segment, is heated by a gas turbine positioned downstream from the thermal storage segment.
