The single atom of strontium after the laser processing has become a laureate of the UK in the field of scientific photography project EPSRC.

The winner was photographer David Radlinger (David Nadlinger), PhD student at Oxford University, who is researching in the field of quantum physics. He stressed that he wanted to share what he watches day and night, so took a picture. Its purpose is to attract attention to his research in the field of research of quantum computing.

The laser causes the strontium atom to emit photons that can be collected using a longer exposure. He took the photo through the window a vacuum ion trap.

EPSRC funded various studies in the UK. In the competition for the best scientific photos were taken about 100 pictures taken during major experiments.
