    I am making a power supply using LM317T. There is a tiny problem. It is mentioned in its datasheet and on some other sites that a 1uF electrolytic Capacitor should be placed between the output terminals. I have 1uF polyester capacitor.

    My question is "Can I use this polyester cap instead of that electrolytic cap?"

    Certainly, it should work fine.
