Who Invented the Analogue Oscilloscope

The oscilloscope came right on the heels of the invention of the cathode ray tube. The initial use of the tubes was to study more about the physics of electrons, but Karl Ferdinand Braun created the CRT, or analogue, oscilloscope in 1897. He did so by applying a signal that was oscillating to electrically charged deflector plates in a CRT coated in phosphor. This was the first application of the device, but with the changes that came to it over the next few years, they were suddenly much more useful for those who were making electronics or who were studying physics.
