Description

A precision luminosity measurement is of critical importance for the ATLAS physics program, both for searches for new physics as well as for precision measurements of Standard Model cross-sections.  The absolute calibration of the ATLAS luminosity scale is based on beam separation (van der Meer) scans which are used to calibrate a variety of luminosity-sensitive detectors.  These detectors then measure the luminosity continuously during regular physics operations.  Uncertainties on the luminosity measurement are evaluated based on the calibration procedure itself, plus uncertainties related to extrapolating this calibration to the entire physics data sample.  The final luminosity measurement for the ATLAS detector during p-p collisions at center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV in 2010 and 2011 is presented, along with prospects for luminosity measurements in p-p collisions at 8 TeV in 2012.
