Google has a different logo today in celebration of David Gabor, who invented holography. The usual, primary colored Google logo has been replaced with the following green and black boxed-in logo.

Holography is a system of lensless, three-dimensional photography that has many applications.

Dennis Gabor won a Nobel Peace Prize for Physics in 1971 for his invention of holography. Gabor's birthday is today. He was born on June 5, 1900 in Budapest. He was a research engineer for the firm of Siemens and Halske in Berlin, and has the following achievements and notable marks on his amply filled timeline.

In 1933 Gabor - who was Jewish - fled Nazi Germany for Britain.

He worked with the Thomson-Houston Company in England, later becoming a British citizen.

In 1947 he conceived the idea of holography and, by employing conventional filtered-light sources, developed the basic technique.

In 1949 Gabor joined the faculty of London's Imperial College of Science and Technology. In 1958 he became professor of applied electron physics.

His other work included research on high-speed oscilloscopes, communication theory, physical optics, and television. Gabor was awarded more than 100 patents.

Dennis Gabor died on February 8, 1979 in London at the age of 78.
