This poster presents measurements of the inclusive differential cross-section of electron production in proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of sqrt(s) = 7 TeV. From a data sample of 1.4 pb−1 collected by the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider, the electron cross-section measurement is presented as a function of transverse momentum, pT , in the range 7 < pT < 26 GeV and within pseudorapidity |eta| < 2.0, correcting for all detector effects. After removal of the Drell-Yan contribution, the measured differential cross-section is found to be in good agreement with theoretical predictions for heavy-flavour production obtained from Fixed Order NLO calculations with Next-to-Leading-Log high-pT resummation. This poster will describe the electron part of the paper http://cdsweb.cern.ch/record/1341818.
