Croissant making inspires renewable energy solution

Croissant making inspires renewable energy solution

The art of croissant making has inspired researchers to find a solution to a sustainable energy problem. Croissants are made by pressing and folding dough to create a layered pastry. The researchers applied this technique to a dielectric capacitor, which is a device that stores energy like a battery.
