Crumpled graphene could provide an unconventional energy storage

Crumpled graphene could provide an unconventional energy storage

Researchers have now found that crumpling a piece of graphene "paper" — a material formed by bonding together layers of the two-dimensional form of carbon — can actually yield new properties that could be useful for creating extremely stretchable supercapacitors to store energy for flexible electronic devices.
