The top quark, discovered at the Tevatron in 1995 by the CDF and DØ collaborations, is the heaviest known particle. The measurement of its properties are of interest to the understanding of the strong and weak forces, as well as searches for physics beyond the Standard Model. Several measurements of top quark properties are presented using data collected at the ATLAS experiment located at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at √s = 7 TeV centre-of-mass energy. The measurements include top quark polarisation, spin correlation, production of tt̅Z and tt̅γ, as well as top mass and W tb vertex measurements in both the lepton + jets and dilepton channel.
