ATLAS or A Toroidal LHC ApparatuS is designed to dectected any new physical processes and particles emerged in proton-proton collision. It is few centimeters next to proton beam the inner detector tracks the charged particles by their interaction with material at discrete points, revelas type of particle and its momentum. Calorimeters next to it absorb energy released by particles and measures. The Muon spectormeter accurately measures the momentum of muons. Atlas has two large magnet systems that bends and accurately measures
