“The photo is composed of the optics inside a Spectra-Physics OPA 800C which are used to generate high energy femtosecond pulses from femtosecond ultra-fast lasers. The bright purple spot is the striking of 800 nm femtosecond pulses (with white light) on Beta-Berium borate crystal”

In the words of the judges, “I like the seemingly randomness of the spectra optics and magenta colors. The complexity of this experiment is laid clear.”
