Gabor was educated at Budapest and Berlin. Having fled from Nazi Germany in 1933, Gabor was invited to Britain to work at the development department of the British Thomson-Houston company in Rugby, Warwickshire. In 1947 whilst working there he invented holography, an achievement for which he later received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1971. Holography however did not become commercially available until the introduction of the "laser" in 1960.
