Title: Measurement of the total cross section from elastic scattering in pp collisions at s = 8   TeV with the ATLAS detector

Abstract

A measurement of the total pp cross section at the LHC at √s = 8 TeV is presented. An integrated luminosity of 500 μb –1 was accumulated in a special run with high-β* beam optics to measure the differential elastic cross section as a function of the Mandelstam momentum transfer variable t. Here, the measurement is performed with the ALFA sub-detector of ATLAS.
