Overview

ATLAS is a particle physics experiment, hosted at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) currently under construction in Geneva, Switzerland. ATLAS will explore the fundamental nature of matter and the basic forces that shape our universe. The ATLAS detector will search for new discoveries in the head-on collisions of protons of extraordinarily high energy. ATLAS is the largest collaborative effort ever attempted in the physical sciences. There are 1800 physicists participating from more than 150 universities and laboratories in 34 countries.

The University of Michigan is the largest University group in the United States participating in the ATLAS experiment and has responsibility for constructing some of the largest muon detectors in the experiment as well as designing and producing electronics to be used by all of the ATLAS muon system. In addition, Michigan is very active in ATLAS software and computing efforts and has several leadership roles in software, networking and grids.
