I think it is PHP, javascript and CSS.

The CSS technique is called lightbox.

I don't know if 'think' is quite definitive for an answer.  Is there an application availble to set up a web page?

Sorry, 'I think' was a bit wishy washy. I will change that to 'It is'

:-)

And here is a link to a PHP gallery with lightbox:

http://webscripts.softpedia.com/script/Image-Galleries/PHP-Lightbox-Photo-Gallery-Script-44696.html

It is easy to setup and a lot of these plug and play galleries only need a minimal amount of fiddling to get an out of the box lightbox gallery up and running.

That's definitely Lightbox. There is a lot of examples of it available in Internet. They are differ by layout and style.
http://orangoo.com/labs/GreyBox/
http://www.huddletogether.com/projects/lightbox2/

They are fair easy to use just embed JS and css style to your html page.
Then when linking to the 'big' image just add relation tag for example rel="gb_imageset[NAME]"

An example:
<a href="big.jpg" rel="lightbox[roadtrip]" title=""><img src="small.jpg" alt="" /></a>

This page uses Lightbox for showing big images, this is a part of the code for enabling Lightbox:
<a href="images/gallery/01_Craig_Strong_dbl.jpg" class="lightbox" rel="lightbox[Lensbaby Photo Gallery]" title="© Craig Strong - DOUBLE GLASS OPTIC"><img src="images/gallery/tn_01_Craig_Strong_dbl.jpg" /></a>

But i would suggest you to use Greybox as your soultion cause it's easier for imlementation
