SYND 3-11-71 INTERVIEW WITH NOBEL SCIENTIST DENNIS GABOR
He is known for inventing holography. His discovery was an unexpected result of research into improving electron microscopes. The technique is still used in electron microscopy, where it is known as electron holography. Optical holography did not really advance until the development of the laser in 1960.
