noninductive capacitor

noninductive capacitor

[‚nän·in′dək·tiv kə′pas·əd·ər]
(electricity)
A capacitor constructed so it has practically no inductance; foil layers are staggered during winding, so an entire layer of foil projects at either end for contact-making purposes; all currents then flow laterally rather than spirally around the capacitor.
