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: we are preparing for potential discoveries of Higgs, SUSY, Top and Exotic physics.
  • Data Acquisition: we specialise in design and programming of electronics such as readout buffers.
  • Trigger: we develop software to perform fast online reconstruction and event selection, and offline analysis tools.
