Gabor was working at the Physics Laboratory of Siemens and Halske Co. between 1927 and 1932. He began to pay special attention to electron optics.

In 1933 he returned to Hungary and continued his research at the Tungsram Electron Tube Research Institute in Budapest. He strengthened his links with Mihály Polányi, Pál Selényi and Imre Bródy. In the institute he worked successfully on his new invention, the plasma lamp.

In 1934 he was already working in Great Britain; the results of his research were summarized in his book, The Electron microscope, which was published in two editions.

Between 1947 and 1958 Gabor taught Electron Physics at the Imperial College in London.
