Abstract

The ATLAS detector at the LHC is used to search for high−mass states, such as heavy charged gauge bosons (W’), decaying to a charged lepton (electron or muon) and a neutrino. Results are presented based on the analysis of pp collisions at a center−of−mass energy of 7 TeV corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 4.7 fb −1. No excess beyond StandardModel expectations is observed. AW’ with Sequential Standard Model couplings is excluded at the 95 % credibility level for masses up to 2.55 TeV. Excited chiral bosons (W ) with equivalent coupling strength are excluded for masses up to 2.42 TeV.
