Google doodle celebrates Dennis Gabor`s birth
London: Google has honoured holograph inventor Dennis Gabor.
The Google doodle marked the 110th anniversary of the Nobel Prize winner’s birth.
He won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1971, for his creation of a system of lensless, three-dimensional photography.
The Hungarian-born electrical engineer worked with the firm Siemens and Halske in Berlin from 1927.
Gabor, who was a Jew, fled to Britain in 1933, with the coming of Adolf Hitler to power in Germany.
He was later given British citizenship, reports the Telegraph.
In 1947 he came up with the basic concept of holography.
He passed away in London on 8 February 1979, aged 78.
