Researchers study the properties of a novel material, described in the journal 'AIP Advances,' that could help build high heat-tolerant supercapacitors The capacitors of electronic circuits function something like batteries – storing electrical charge that can be quickly dumped to power devices like camera flashes. So-called "supercapacitors" take the energy-storing abilities of capacitors a step further, storing a far greater charge in a much smaller package. In a paper published in...
