This 'kissing lips' photo of a couple of quadrupole magnets in the Desy lab in Hamburg gave third place in the overall competition to Heiko Roemisch.
Desy houses several particle accelerators that underpin its 40 years of research in high-energy physics. It also has a high-intensity facility for synchrotron radiation and is the testbed for the upcoming European XFEL free-electron laser.
