Transition Radiation Performance Study from ATLAS TRT

Experiments of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN are successfully underway. One of the important tasks of experiments is to identify the type of final state particles. Specially, identifying leptons from hadrons is a quite a challenge if considering the ratio of order of millionth. With this mind, ATLAS transition radiation tracker (TRT) is designed to produce and detect transition radiation (TR) and its performance will be presented.
