Construction and testing of a replica of Einstein's 'little machine'

Danny Segers UGent, Kristel Wautier UGent and Jos Uyttenhove (2009) AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PHYSICS. 77(1). p.10-12
abstract
Einstein developed his "little machine" to measure small electrical charges, but there are no publications that describe measurements done with this apparatus. We report on our construction of a replica of the little machine and on our tests of its performance.
