Ultracapacitors
Introduction Capacitors are devices extensively used in electronic circuits, most notably in applications like filters and control circuits. In their simplest form, capacitors consist of a couple of electrically conductive surfaces separated by a dielectric material: when a voltage is applied on the conductors, an electrostatic field is formed by the positive electric charges accumulating on one plate and the negative electric charges on the other. The energy that is stored in the capacitor is given by:
