A simulated event. September 10, 2008 - The ATLAS detector lit up as a flood of particles traversed the detector when the beam was occasionally directed at a target near ATLAS. This allowed ATLAS physicists to study how well the various components of the detector were functioning in preparation...

This is a segment of the movie 'Episode II, The Particles Strike Back', illustrating how the ATLAS detector detects different types of particles.

A simulated collision event viewed along the beampipe.
The event is one in which a microscopic-blackhole was produced and decayed immediately. The black area in the center with many particle tracks represents the inner detector (pixel detector, semiconductor tracker, and transition...

This animation was created of an actual ATLAS collision event on 5 April, 2010. This animation shows from the particle view the race through the LHC, ending in the detector where the particle collision occurs. First candidate for an event with a W boson decaying to electron + neutrino seen in 7...

This animation was created of an actual ATLAS collision event in 2010. This animation shows from the particle view the race through the LHC, ending in the detector where the particle collision occurs. Candidate for an event with a Z boson decaying to two muons.
