While in the Standard Model top quarks are predicted to be produced unpolarized at the LHC, several models beyond the SM predict a non-zero polarisation. In particular, some of the models predicting a larger forward-backward asymmetry than the SM, as measured at the Tevatron, predict a positive top quark polarisation. Using 4.66 fb−1 of data collected by the ATLAS experiment at a centre of mass energy of 7 TeV, a measurement of the top quark polarisation is presented. The full system is reconstructed from final states with at least one charged lepton, and a template fit to the distribution of the angle between the charged lepton and the top quark is performed to measure the top quark polarisation.
