Emilio Segrè Visual Archives

More than 30,000 photos of scientists and their work

Attention ESVA patrons:

The Emilio Segrè Visual Archives’ site is moving soon and adopting an open access approach to digital image sharing. Once we have transitioned to the new site in 2021, we will no longer charge for our high-resolution digital images or usage fees (note that we do not hold copyright to all the images in our collections and you will still need to obtain permission for those which we do not own).

If you are working on a long-term project, we advise you to wait until the migration is complete so that you may obtain our copies for free. If you cannot wait, email us at nbl [at] aip.org and we will do what we can to assist you. We will not be offering refunds for past purchases.

For more information, please visit our FAQ page on the Ex Libris Universum blog.

Description: 

Portrait of Simon White, Managing Director, Max Planck Institute of Astrophysics, Garching, Germany photographed in London. The poster in the background shows images of the so-called Millenium Simulation, a supercomputer simulation of the growth of large-scale structure in the Universe. The bright regions are places where there is predicted to be lots of material and the dark regions are places where there is very little. The calculations followed how gravity makes structure grow as the Universe ages. Photo used in book and exhibit 'Portraits of Astronomers' by Lucinda Douglas-Menzies.
