Abstract

The Muon Spectrometer of the ATLAS experiment has been designed to identify and precisely measure muon tracks over a wide range of transverse momentum, pseudorapidity, and azimuthal angle. At the time of writing this report (June 2008), the installation of the detector is almost completed and the commissioning with cosmic rays is well advanced. ATLAS is approaching a turning point. In August the experimental hall will be closed and the LHC machine will start its commissioning phase. The experiment will then be in continuous running mode waiting for the first circulating beam and for the first proton-proton collisions. The status of the assembly of the spectrometer and the relative tests are discussed and the first experience in reconstructing cosmic-ray tracks are presented.
