Dennis Gabor and Google Doodle For Birthday

By Alan Ng - Jun 5, 2010

For those of you who are wondering what Google’s latest doogle means on their homepage, we can tell you that it is in celebration of Dennis Gabor an electrical engineer who invented holography.

He was born on this day, June 5th in Budapest, Hungary. After serving in World War I, he studied in Hungary and developed an interest in electron optics.

After his studies, he became a British citizen in 1946, and invented holography in 1947 while working at British Thomson-Houston.

He received the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1971 for his works and today his efforts are still acknowledged whenever June 5th comes around.

This latest Google doogle may not be as fun as say a Pacman flash game, but it is a lot more significant you have to say. Let us know your thoughts on Dennis Gabor.
