Special effects zoom photograph of a particle interaction in the UA1 detector at CERN, the particle physics laboratory outside Geneva. The UA1 detector, which discovered the W & Z particles in 1983, records the collisions of protons & anti- protons accelerated to very high energy in CERN's SPS collider. When a proton & antiproton collide, they annihilate into pure energy which rematerial- ises as a large number of new particles that spray out in all directions. The photograph symbolises the explosive appearance of such interactions. The detector itself is outlined in red.
This photographic print leverages sophisticated digital technology to capture a level of detail that is absolutely stunning. The colors are vivid and pure. The high-quality archival paper, a favorite choice among professional photographers, has a refined luster quality.
