Who Invented the Oscilloscope

In 1897, Karl Ferdinand Braun invented the oscilloscope, which was an adaptation that he made to the cathode ray tube. He worked with and made improvements to Marconi’s wireless telegraphy. In fact, he and Marconi shared the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1909. One of the interesting things to note is that these tubes were the precursors to the tubes used for television and radar systems years later.
