ATLAS Open Data aims to deliver some web and desktop applications so that users can explore High Energy Physics (HEP) real and simulated data on their browser or computer. Explore a simulation of the ATLAS detector. Go more in-depth on the code: use the Jupyter notebooks examples to run, modify and explore real analysis code without any complicated setup nor installation.

This dataset is provided by the ATLAS Collaboration only for educational purposes and is not suited for scientific publications.

  • The ATLAS Open Data are released under the Creative Commons CC0 waiver.
  • Neither ATLAS nor CERN endorses any works produced using these data, which is intended only for educational use.
  • All data sets will have a unique DOI that you are requested to cite in any (non-scientific) applications or publications.
  • Despite being processed, the high-level primary datasets remain complex, and selection criteria need to be applied in order to analyse them, requiring some understanding of particle physics and detector functioning.
  • The large majority of the data cannot be viewed in simple data tables for spreadsheet-based analyses.
