Holography dates back to 1947,
when Hungarian-born British
scientist Dennis Gabor (1900-1979)
developed the theory of holography
while working to improve electron

term hologram from the Greek
words holos (meaning whole) and
gramma (meaning message). The
1971 Nobel prize in physics was
awarded to Gabor for this invention.
