Capturing the elusive.

This photograph—used for the cover of the September 2017 issue of Science—is the result of collaboration between UChicago Creative photographer Jean Lachat and UChicago physics professor Juan Collar. The subject is a prototype developed by Collar for a portable detector of notoriously elusive elementary particles called neutrinos. The beautiful image was achieved through the use of both tested and innovative photographic techniques, and it conveys the simultaneous simplicity and complexity of both neutrinos and the methods of detecting them.
