    This is easy. My most favorite physics picture is my avatar, because it gave me my most cited paper to date.

    :)

    It's an interesting avatar, Zz. But what is it - did you 'splain it somewhere on PF?

    Yeh, I'd love to know. Is it in anyway related to a shift in frequency?

    NOTE: Vague comment may just be somehow related to picture.

    It is an actual dispersion curve of an overdoped high-Tc superconductor obtained directly from an angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy. In the paper, there are 2 other similar curves for the underdoped and optimally-doped compound. The 3 of them together gave a very compelling evolution of the dispersion as one varies the doping value in this material. I have an "attachment" to the overdoped data because (i) I was the one who pushed for a study on this doping range that has been overlooked by people in the field because they thought it was a "conventional" superconductor (it isn't), (ii) I actually made the measurement and (iii) it was my initiative that found us the overdoped material.

    I think, to this date, for this Bi2212 material, it is still the most highly overdoped sample ever studied (Tc~51 K). So even almost 8 years after it was published, we still hold that "record" :)

    gotta agree with pooploops. I love that picture.
