WORD

There are several reasons for my archiving words but ultimately the celebration of words drives this post in progress. Look below and you’ll notice some glorious findings.

I, like you, communicate but I mostly misuse and misunderstand high-falutin words: stuttering and flailing around language and writing in a style that is bulbously long-winded.

The current program at Crescent Arts, Artist Writes, developing communication between artists and writers, projecting artists articulating as writers and discussing concepts shrouding text and context has nourished my love of word and text. I gulp both with gusto but here I am seeking to sustain and affirm my lifelong wonder by logging, by date and you will notice sporadically, words I had previously not encountered.

I aim to update this blog post and I invite you too to share your findings.

Oscilloscopes (CROs)

An oscilloscope is a test instrument which allows you to look at the ‘shape’ of electrical signals by displaying a graph of voltage against time on its screen. It is like a voltmeter with the valuable extra function of showing how the voltage varies with time. A graticule with a 1cm grid enables you to take measurements of voltage and time from the screen.

The graph, usually called the trace, is drawn by a beam of electrons striking the phosphor coating of the screen making it emit light, usually green or blue. This is similar to the way a television picture is produced.

Oscilloscopes contain a vacuum tube with a cathode (negative electrode) at one end to emit electrons and an anode (positive electrode) to accelerate them so they move rapidly down the tube to the screen. This arrangement is called an electron gun. The tube also contains electrodes to deflect the electron beam up/down and left/right.

The electrons are called cathode rays because they are emitted by the cathode and this gives the oscilloscope its full name of cathode ray oscilloscope or CRO.

A dual trace oscilloscope can display two traces on the screen, allowing you to easily compare the input and output of an amplifier for example. It is well worth paying the modest extra cost to have this facility.
