Dennis Gabor Biography

Google Doodle Holography and Dennis Gabor Biography
Noticed the Holography image of Google on your search engine pages? Google celebrates Dennis Gabor’s birthday this June 5. Dennis Gabor, unknown to some is the father of Holography. He dedicated most of his studies in the input and output of electrons which then led his to the discovery of holograms. He won a Nobel Prize back in 1971.

Holography is a technique that that allows the light scattered from an object to be recorded and later reconstructed so that it appears as if the object is in the same position. Today we use Holograms to store, retrieve and process information. Holograms protect us from forgery and so many companies are using it in verifying originality of products. For schools, holograms are used for teaching students to gain a better illustration of things. In museums, most precious items are made into holograms to protect incidents of theft, and for theme parks, people can experience seeing places without the need for travel etc.

Isn’t the technology from Holography that Dennis Gabor brought just awesome? Happy 110th birthday to Dennis Gabor!
