    ATLAS Detector Commissioning with Photons

    An intense commissioning activity of the ATLAS detector has preceded the LHC beam start up. Both cosmics events and in earlier periods test beam events have been utilized. The commission- ing of the ATLAS detector using photons has been an integral part of this effort. In this paper we present the results of these activities following a discussion of the reconstruction of photons in the ATLAS detector

    We present a measurement of the 226^{226}Th ion mobility in LXe at 163.0 K and 0.9 bar. The result obtained, 0.240±\pm0.011 (stat) ±\pm0.011 (syst) cm2^{2}/(kV-s), is compared with a popular model of ion transport.Comment: 6.5 pages,
