Figure 38

The unique linear Angel prototype produced by replication: 47 square channels, 120 mm long, and 2 . 5 × 2 . 5  mm. This picture illustrates the power of electroformed replication even for very long square cells which otherwise could not be polished inside. In this technology, the square mandrels were highly polished and then replicated, so the polished surface is now inside. This demonstrates that also other techniques as MCP can be considered for LE Angel arrangements.
