ATLAS detector's Liquid Argon electromagnetic calorimeter is capable of precisely measuring photon's timing and pointing. This allows us to uniquely probe physics beyond the standard model that involves neutral long-lived particles that decay into photons. In this presentation, I will describe how ATLAS measures photon pointing and timing, summarize the results from Run 1 analysis and shed a light on the on-going Run 2 analysis.
