“Sync the Beauty”
Scientific Photography Competition
Science is a systematic process of making observations, developing assumptions, conducting experiments and drawing conclusions. New knowledge is generalized from investigating the secrets of nature. Scientific workers pursue the true, the good and the beautiful grounded in their sense and sensibility, which is very similar to artistic creation. Stunning visuals caught from observations and experiments never stop amazing human eyes. Through scientific photography, you will discover that science is beautiful and artistic!
The photography competition is open to NSRRC users who have a valid user card.

Crystallography has come of age. X-ray diffraction technique is an important method to investigate crystal structures. However, the traditional X-ray diffraction technique is considered insufficient to study crystal structures at micro- to nano- scale, which have attracted a lot of interest from scientists. The photo is a demonstration of an oxidized cooper foil probed with the new-generation synchrotron scanning type nano-focused X-ray Laue diffraction technique (TPS 21A). Along with an online scanning electron microscopy (SEM), functioning as a navigator and a monitor, this superior technique is able to study samples from a few micrometers to hundreds of nanometers, and provide good details about the crystal structure, crystal orientation, and even the residual stress and dislocation density over a very small area.
