Günszberg Dénes

By
Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

Günszberg Dénes was born in Budapest, Hungary back in 1900 to Gunszberg and Jakobovits. In 1902, the family changed their surname to Gabor. In 1918, the family converted to Lutheranism although he considered himself agnostic. During WWI, he served with the Hungarian artillery. He studied engineering at the Technical University of Budapest and later at the Technical University of Berlin.

In 1933, he fled Nazi Germany making it to Rugby, Warwickshire working for the British Thomson-Houston Company. In 1948, he moved to be a professor at the Imperial College, London. He died in a nursing home in South Kensington, London in 1979.

What you may not know about Dennis Gabor (the name he took when the family changed it from Denes to Gabor), is that he invented holography, for his invention he received the 1971 Nobel Prize in Physics.

Hello James - I admit I had the same initial response as Nina Hollander with a Gabor sisters connection although I know Gabor is somewhat of a common Hungarian name.

Hmm, I am not sure what holography is, I will have to look it up.  I am guessing that it deals with the creation of holographs.

James,

I remember my father taking me to Minneapolis to see a holographic exhibit.  It was a thrill.  Hurray for Gabor!  A

I can see why the invention of the hologram would get you a Nobel. Fascinating!
