Hello Frank,

I want to build my first home made LTZ1000A-Reference the next days and 
found an elder post:

Did you find the root cause of the spikes? Eventually your experiences
would help me to avoid some errors.

My planned cirquit uses the datasheet cirquit as a base with 
for the zener voltage to avoid starting issues. Further to reduce the 
of the LT1013 I have an (optional) BF245C J-FET as power-stage
for the zener current.

The power-supply is based on 12 NiMh-Cells which are regulated
by a LTC1763 down to 14.0 V. The whole is packaged in a EURO-sized
aluminium metal case together with a L200-based simple charger
and a undervoltage detection cirquit which switches off in case of
deep discharge.
The area around the LTZ1000A can be shielded with a tin can
metal shield.

For the first step I did no mechanical stress relief like in the
datron reference. With my UPW50-resistors (3ppm) there
is not enough place within the inner shield to do this.

best regards
