# Study of black holes with the ATLAS detector at the LHC

@article{Tanaka2005StudyOB, title={Study of black holes with the ATLAS detector at the LHC}, author={J. Tanaka and T. Yamamura and S. Asai and J. Kanzaki}, journal={The European Physical Journal C - Particles and Fields}, year={2005}, volume={41}, pages={19-33} }

Abstract.We evaluate the potential of the ATLAS detector for discovering black holes produced at the LHC, as predicted in models with large extra dimensions where quantum gravity is at the TeV scale. We assume that black holes decay by Hawking evaporation to all Standard Model particles democratically. We comment on the possibility to estimate the Planck scale.
