Mica Capacitor is a component that is made by alternately stacking metal sheets and layers of mica, or by applying silver ink to sheets of mica. The metal sheets are wired together into two meshed sets, forming the two terminals of the capacitor. This type of capacitor is noted for low loss. Voltage ratings can be up to several thousand volts if thick sheets of mica are used. But these capacitors are physically bulky in proportion to their capacitance. The main application is in radio receivers and transmitters.
