US ATLAS Help Bar


The US ATLAS group consists of 31 universities and 3 national laboratories. It is participating in the design, construction, operation and physics exploitation of a large general-purpose detector (ATLAS) to be installed in one of the interaction regions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN.


The ATLAS detector consists of 4 major components: The inner tracker (yellow), calorimetry (green and orange), muon spectrometer (blue) and the magnet system (gray). The US groups (comprising of ~20% of the ATLAS institutions) are participating in all aspects of the experiment. The detector is due to begin operation in the year 2007.

A public tour of ATLAS is available at http://atlas.ch.
