os·cil·lo·scope

 (ə-sĭl′ə-skōp′)
n.
An electronic instrument that produces an instantaneous trace on the screen of a cathode-ray tube corresponding to oscillations of voltage and current.


os·cil′lo·scop′ic (-skŏp′ĭk) adj.

oscilloscope

(ɒˈsɪləˌskəʊp)
n
1. (Electronics) an instrument for producing a representation of a quantity that rapidly changes with time on the screen of a cathode-ray tube. The changes are converted into electric signals, which are applied to plates in the cathode-ray tube. Changes in the magnitude of the potential across the plates deflect the electron beam and thus produce a trace on the screen
2. (General Physics) an instrument for producing a representation of a quantity that rapidly changes with time on the screen of a cathode-ray tube. The changes are converted into electric signals, which are applied to plates in the cathode-ray tube.
