Proton–proton collisions at $\sqrt{s}=7$ TeV and heavy ion collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}=2.76$ TeV were produced by the LHC and recorded using the ATLAS experiment’s trigger system in 2010. The LHC is designed with a maximum bunch crossing rate of 40 MHz and the ATLAS trigger system is designed to record approximately 200 of these per second. The trigger system selects events by rapidly identifying signatures of muon, electron, photon, tau lepton, jet, and B meson candidates, as well as using… Expand
