Hi All,
    The autopsy of the mica cap revealed that the mica sheets did not fail. No
punctures were seen.   The failure was that I did not use enough of a border
around the sheets as evidenced by the carbon tracks from the edge of the
plates outward towards the edges of the mica.  I will have to try another, but
use a better design.
