Proton collisions at the Large Hadron Collider could provide evidence for the existence of leptoquarks, hypothetical bosons that couple directly to leptons and quarks. Monte Carlo based studies of second generation leptoquark pair production in the ATLAS detector are presented, as well as predictions for discovery and exclusion potential with early ATLAS data.
