Google honours the father of Holograms
If you go to Google‘s home page today (as many of us will no doubt do), you’ll find the latest in their series of “doodles”, commemorating a special event or holiday in a particular part of the world.
Dennis Gabor (original Hungarian name: Gábor Dénes) CBE, FRS, (5 June 1900, Budapest – 8 February 1979, London) was a British-Hungarian Jewish electrical engineer and inventor, most notable for inventing holography, for which he later received the 1971 Nobel Prize in Physics.
So, the old phrase “you learn something new every day” is proved true again and we raise our virtual glass to Dennis Gabor for his birthday!
