University of Birmingham – Franck-Hertz Measurement Lab

The physics department at the University of Birmingham has a neat second year lab exercise that uses a Syscomp Oscilloscope to perform the Franck-Hertz experiment.  The Franck-Hertz experiment uses electrical measurements to show the quantum nature of atoms.  More information on the original experiment here.
