In ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions, one expects copious rates of $\gamma\gamma$ processes through the interaction of the large electromagnetic fields of the nuclei which can lead to light-by-light scattering via loop diagrams. This process was directly observed for the first time at the LHC by ATLAS. Final measurements of light-by-light scattering with the full Run 2 dataset with substantially reduced uncertainties are presented. This process provides a precise and unique opportunity to investigate extensions of the Standard Model such as axion-like particles.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
