Listen to your teachers when they tell you WHAT to do. But more importantly, think about it later and ask yourself WHY they told you to do it.

axis) with constant time dependent rate. This is accomplished by a time base circuit provided in the oscilloscope. The signal to be viewed is supplied to the vertical deflection plates through the vertical amplifier, which raises the potential of the input signal to a level that will provide usable deflection of the electron beam. Now electron beam deflects in two directions, horizontal on X-axis and vertical on Y-axis. A triggering circuit is provided for synchronising two types of deflections so that horizontal deflection starts at the same point of the input vertical signal each time it sweeps. A basic block diagram of a general-purpose oscilloscope is shown in Figure 9.1(a) and a schematic of internal parts of a CRT is shown in Figure 9.1(b). Figure 9.1 (a) Block diagram of a general-purpose CRO Figure 9.1 (b) Cathode Ray Tube(CRT) ELECTROSTATIC DEFLECTION 9.3 Figure 9.2 shows a general arrangement for electrostatic deflection. There are two parallel plates with a potential applied between. These plates produce a uniform electrostatic filed in the Y direction. Thus any electron entering the field will experience a force in the Y direction and will be accelerate in that direction. There is no force either in X direction or Z direction and hence there will be no acceleration of electrons in these directions. 2

The velocity in the X direction remains same throughout the passage of electrons through the deflecting plates as there is no force acting in the direction. Suppose ay is the acceleration of the electron in the Y direction, therefore, 3

As there is no initial velocity in the Y direction [Eq. (9.8)], the displacement y at any instant t in the Y direction is As the velocity in the X direction is constant, the displacement in X direction is given by Substituting the above value of t in Eq. (9.8), we have This is the equation of a parabola. Putting x = ld in Eq. (9.12), we get the value of tan θ. After leaving the deflection plates, the electrons travel in a straight line. The straight line of travel of electron is tangent to the parabola at x = ld and this tangent intersects the X axis at point O’. The location of this point is given by The apparent origin is thus the centre of the deflecting plates, the deflection D on the screen is given by From Eq. (9.16) we conclude the following: For a given accelerating voltage Ea, and for particular dimensions of CRT, the deflection of the electron beam is directly proportional to the deflecting voltage. This means that the CRT may be used as a linear indicating device. The discussions above assume that Ed is a fixed dc voltage. The deflection voltage is usually a time varying quantity and the image on the screen thus follows the variation of the deflections voltage in a linear manner. The deflection is independent of the (e/m) ratio. In a cathode ray tube, in addition to the electrons many types of negative ions such as oxygen, carbon, chlorine etc are present. With electrostatic deflection system, because deflection is independent of e/m, the ions 4

travel with the electrons and are not concentrated at one point. Hence cathode ray tube with electrostatic deflection system does not produce an ion burn. The deflection sensitivity of a CRT is defined as the deflection of the screen per unit deflection voltage. The deflection factor of a CRT is defined as the reciprocal of sensitivity It is clear from Eq. (9.17), that the sensitivity can be increased by decreasing the value of accelerating voltage Ea. but this has a disadvantage as the luminosity of the spot is decreased with decrease in Ea. On the other hand a high value of Ea, produced a highly accelerated beam and thus produces a bright spot. However, a high accelerating voltage (Ea) requires a high deflection potential (Ed) for a given deflection. Also, highly accelerated beam is more difficult to deflect and is sometimes called hard beam. Example 9.1 An electrically deflected CRT has a final anode voltage of 2000 V and parallel deflecting plates 1.5 cm long and 5 mm apart. If the screen is 50 cm from the centre of deflecting plates, find (a) beam speed, (b) the deflection sensitivity of the tube, and (c) the deflection factor of the tube. Solution Velocity of the beam Deflection sensitivity, Example 9.2 Calculate the maximum velocity of the beam of electrons in a CRT having a anode voltage of 800 V. Assume that the electrons to leave the anode with zero velocity. Charge of electron = 1.6 × 10−19 C and mass of electron = 9.1 × 10−31 kg. Solution Velocity of electron is 5
