I will report on measurement of the WW production cross section and associated limits on anomalous couplings using LHC proton-proton collision data collected by the ATLAS Detector at 7 TeV center-of-mass energy. The production cross section was measured in the WW leptonic decay channels. Precise measurement of the triple-gauge-boson couplings is a stringent test of the Standard Model and also a sensitive probe to new physics in the bosonic sector that could provide complementary information to direct searches for new physics at LHC. Results about the WWgamma and WWZ triple-gauge-boson coupling limits will be presented.
