It would be cute, but inexpensive it wouldn't be.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
It would essentially need all of the HV and deflection
stuff from an oscilloscope, and then probably a
computer to collect and display the data.
These days, schools are ditching all sorts of experimental
artifacts from yesteryear, and using computer simulations
Look at circuits class. The lab is to have the kids sit down
in front of a computer simulated plug board, and stick simulated
packaged parts into the simulated board, and watch the result
of a spice like program. The whole thing is open source if you
want to play with it... though I cannot imagine why anyone would.
A local recycler received tons of discarded equipment from the
physics biology, and EE labs of East Coast schools a few years
back. Microscopes galore, meters and bridges, teaching
demonstrations, chemistry glassware, ... you could start a
major university with all the stuff they got.
I still have a globe from a student physics experiment used to
measure the charge and mass of the electron. I couldn't bear
to destroy it. Its 3 dozen mates went to scrap glass because
they couldn't find a single school that wanted them, or any of
it for that matter.
