Muonic final states will have a clean signature at the LHC. ATLAS and CMS will be able to identify muons with a high reconstruction efficiency above 96% and a high transverse momentum resolution better than 2% for transverse momenta below 400 GeV/c and about 10% at 1 TeV/c. The experiments follow complentary concepts in the muon detection. ATLAS has a n instrumented air-toroid mangetic system serving as a standalone muon spectrometer. CMS focusses on high bending power and momentum resolution in the inner detector. It uses an iron yoke to increase its magnetic field. The iron yoke is instrumented with muon chambers. Therefore muon momenta can only be reconstructed with high precision in combination with the inner detector in CMS.
