About the group
ATLAS is one of the two general purpose detectors for the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. The ATLAS experiment is investigating the behavior of matter, energy, space and time and the smallest distance scales ever probed. Located at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Physics, near , ATLAS observes the highest energy proton-proton collisions ever achieved. The Argonne HEP Group has played major roles in the hadronic calorimeter, elements of the trigger, and the data handling for the unprecedented data volumes that will be produced in the course of the experiment - and distributed worldwide. We host one of three analysis support centers in the US where we host visitors and hold workshops. The center also has a multi-core computing platform for data analysis and a remote monitoring station which allows detector monitoring shifts to be run at Argonne.
