Gabor, Dennis

Gabor, Dennis
   b. 1900, Budapest (Hungary); d. 1979
   Physicist
   Hungarian-born Dennis Gabor was working as an industrial research engineer in Germany when Hitler came to power. He moved to England in 1933, and later taught for twenty years at Imperial College, London, where he became professor of applied electronic physics. Although in 1948 he invented holography (a means of producing a threedimensional photographic image without using a lens), he was not awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics for this discovery until 1971. Applica-tions for his invention were not found until the development of lasers (lightwave amplification by stimulated emission of radiation) in the 1960s. In 1968 he was appointed staff scientist at CBS Laboratories in Stamford, Connecticut.
