|Memories of VideoDisc - Who's Who in VideoDisc|
Istvan Gorog received the B.Sc. (1961), M.Sc. (1962), and Ph.D. (1964) degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley. In 1964, Dr. Gorog joined the technical staff of the RCA Laboratories, Princeton, N. J., where his main areas of interest have been quantum electronics and electro-optical systems. His research activities have included lasers and Iaser systems, holography, pre-recorded-video recording and playback techniques, displays, and investigation of the psycho-physical aspects of electronic imaging. His current activities include product and process development related to the RCA VideoDisc, manufacturing instrumentation, and electrochromics. Dr. Gorog is Head of the Optical Electronics Research Group at RCA Laboratories.
During 1968 he was on leave of absence from RCA as a National Science Foundation Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati and the European Space Research Institute in Frascati, Italy, where he worked on the problems of production of high-temperature plasmas by laser irradiation of solid targets and scattering of laser radiation by collective plasma fluctuations. Dr. Gorog is a member of the American Physical Society and of Eta Kappa Nu.

Istvan Gorog received the BSc (1961), MSc (1962), and PhD (1964) degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley. In 1964, he joined RCA Laboratories Princeton, NJ, as a Member of the Technical Staff. His research activities have included lasers and their applications; holography; optical communications, the investigation of prerecorded video recording and playback techniques; laser deflection and modulations; photochromic, cathodochromic, and electrochromic devices, and a wide variety of display systems. He has also been interested in the analysis of image transmission and display in terms of the quantitative descriptors of human visual perception. This work included the initiation of an experimental psychophysics program at RCA Laboratories. He also initiated and was responsible for all optical reading, recording, and instrumentation efforts related to the development of the RCA VideoDisc. During 1968 he was on leave from RCA as a National Science Foundation Post-doctoral Fellow at the Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati and the European Space Research Institute in Frascati, Italy. There he worked on the problems of production of high-temperature plasmas by laser irradiation of solid targets and scattering of laser radiation by collective plasma fluctuations.
In 1983, Dr. Gorog was appointed Director of the Manufacturing Technology Research Laboratory at RCA Laboratories. He directs research and development in the areas of automation, process control, and applied physics, in support of RCA's manufacturing operations.
Dr. Gorog has published and presented over 60 technical papers, has been granted 21 U.S. patents, and has several patent applications pending both in this country and abroad. He is a member of the American Physical Society and of Eta Kappa Nu.
