Protein crystallography equipment in a physics research laboratory. Crystallography uses X-ray diffraction to determine the atomic structure of a crystal. In this case, the equipment is being used to determine the structure of proteins. This laboratory is part of the centre for synchrotron radiation and nanotechnologies at the Kurchatov Institute, in Moscow, Russia. Photographed in 2007.
