The ATLAS experiment

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is scheduled to begin colliding protons in 2008. ATLAS is one of the two general purpose detectors being built in the LHC ring. RHUL is one of the founding members of the ATLAS collaboration. Our major contributions are in the design of the high level trigger and data acquisition systems, as well as in exploiting the physics opportunities ATLAS will provide.

The RHUL group works in the following areas of ATLAS:

  • Physics studies: Higgs, SUSY, Top and Exotics.
  • Data Acquisition: we specialise in readout buffer hardware design and programming.
  • Trigger: we coordinate the trigger software releases and validation; we work on the software that selects events online and analyzes the trigger performance offline.
