The ATLAS Experiment

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


The ATLAS experiment is a general-purpose particle detector operated by an international collaboration of more than 3000 scientists. It is designed to search for a broad range of new phenomena by precisely studying the collisions of high energy protons, which are provided by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) accelerator at CERN, Geneva.
