Description

We present the measurement of Wgamma and Zgamma production cross sections using data corresponding to the full 2010 and 2011 periods of the LHC run. For charged lepton decay modes of W and Z bosons the total cross sections are measured for photon transverse energy greater than 15 GeV. We also present the first measurement of Zgamma production cross section using the nunugamma final state for photon transverse energy greater than 145 GeV. The results are also interpreted in terms of limits of anomalous trilinear gauge couplings.
