  • Croissants are made by pressing and folding dough to create a layered pastry.
  • Currently, there are three main energy storage options: batteries, electrochemical capacitors and dielectric capacitors.
  • Expensive and complex synthesis and processing routes are normally necessary to achieve high energy density in polymer film capacitors but this newly developed processing, pressing and folding, is unique for its simplicity, record high energy density and potential to be adopted by industry.
