Electron and photon triggers covering transverseenergies from 5 GeV to several TeV are essential for theATLAS experiment to record signals for a wide variety ofphysics: from Standard Model processes to searches for newphenomena in both proton–proton and heavy-ion collisions.To cope with a fourfold increase of peak LHC luminosityfrom 2015 to 2018 (Run 2), to 2.1×1034cm−2s−1, anda similar increase in the number of interactions per beam-crossing to about 60, trigger algorithms and selections wereoptimised to control the rates while retaining a high effi-ciency for physics analyses. For proton–proton collisions, thesingle-electron trigger efficiency relative to a single-electronoffline selection is at least 75% for an offline electron of31 GeV, and rises to 96% at 60 GeV; the trigger efficiency ofa 25 GeV leg of the primary diphoton trigger relative to a tightoffline photon selection is more than 96% for an offline pho-ton of 30 GeV. For heavy-ion collisions, the primary electronand photon trigger efficiencies relative to the correspondingstandard offline selections are at least 84% and 95%, respec-tively, at 5 GeV above the corresponding trigger threshold.
