Re: Undamped oscillations - Tikker

". . . By means of the same, it is practicable to rotate a body of
considerable weight with uniform and adjustable velocity, and it
lends itself to the operation of circuit controllers, curve tracers,
and all kinds of such devices. It will be found most useful in
tracing current or electromotive force curves and a variety of diagrams. . . ."
It would be interesting, from an historical point of view, to figure
out how Tesla might have used the tikker for, "tracing current or
electromotive force curves and a variety of diagrams. . . ."

Hi Ed, Gary et al,
didn't Tesla experiment with stroboscopic observation of waves, or at
least frequency? If so could he not have detected frequency components
as well as the main carrier using this method (using a beat frequency
method of some sort). Not as good as an oscilloscope or spectrum
analyser, but perhaps he would have been able to to pick-out
components with this method?
