With the award of the 1971 Nobel prize in physics to Dennis Gabor, holography has reached a new pinnacle of prestige. Gabor won his prize for the invention of holography, a form of wavefront reconstruction in which a coherent reference wave appears to unlock a three‐dimensional replica of an object from a two‐dimensional standing‐wave pattern.
