Description

A search for the Standard Model Higgs boson in the diphoton decay channel in proton-proton collisions using recent data collected with the ATLAS detector at the LHC, over the diphoton mass range 110-150 GeV is reported. Upper limits on the cross-section times branching ratio are derived. Additionaly, the results of the search for the fermiophobic Higgs boson are presented, based on the 4.9 fb-1 of data collected in 2011 at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV.
