The highlighted comment was created in this revision.

I think this is a very good nomination. There seems to be a disconnect, however, between the milestone title on this site and the title as reported in the monthly milestone report. Which is the correct title?

    The titles given in the monthly milestone report are WORKING TITLES ONLY and may be a shortened version of the titles (which may be unwieldy). Also, titles change as they progress from the proposal to the point where the citation is being carefully edited.

      I agree that this is an outstanding nomination. I think the title and citation are fine.

        I agree with both the title and the citation wording. I look forward to this milestone's dedication.

          I too agree this is a fine nomination. I support it fully.

            This Nomination seems to be quite clear and the Citation also looks clear and concise; I also support it.

              I strongly support this nomination, and hope that it can be approved as soon as possible. Of course, you may say that I am biased, since I had a hand in its preparation, and the location is in my Section (UK&RI).

              I did not think that there were significant doubts about Dennis Gabor's education, there is a lot written about it, and the comments by "appyuste" look correct to me.

              What I could not find out for sure is whether he was invited to England to work for BTH, or whether he came and then found employment with them. Some of the available descriptions seem to differ over that.

                Though I had a general idea on how holograph works, I did not know where it had started. Now I know the idea was conceived as back as 1947. Writings in the Nomination are convincing enough for me and I support the Nomination.

                Aside from the subject itself, learning Gabor was born in Hungary, it interesting to observe that the country of Hungary generates a line of innovative and very unique characters such as Andy Grove of Intel, George Solos the derivative operator in finance, and Peter Brody the inventor of TFT Active-Matrix LCD currently used throughout the world. Can anybody explain this?
