Description

The search for the Standard Model Higgs boson via its decays into two Z bosons is presented, based on the proton-proton collisions recorded recently by the ATLAS experiment at the LHC. For Higgs boson masses above 200 GeV, the sensitivity is substantially enhanced by using channels in which one of the Z bosons decays into neutrinos or quarks. With the current integrated luminosity, a wide mass range is excluded at the 95% confidence level.
