This paper presents the electron and photon energy calibration achieved with the ATLAS detector using about 25Â fb-1 of LHC protonâ€“proton collision data taken at centre-of-mass energies of (Equation Present) and 8Â TeV. The reconstruction of electron and photon energies is optimised using multivariate algorithms. The response of the calorimeter layers is equalised in data and simulation, and the longitudinal profile of the electromagnetic showers is exploited to estimate the passive material in front of the calorimeter and reoptimise the detector simulation. After all corrections, the Z resonance is used to set the absolute energy scale. For electrons from Z decays, the achieved calibration is typically accurate to 0.05Â % in most of the detector acceptance, rising to 0.2Â % in regions with large amounts of passive material. The remaining inaccuracy is less than 0.2â€“1Â % for electrons with a transverse energy of 10Â GeV, and is on average 0.3Â % for photons. The detector resolution is determined with a relative inaccuracy of less than 10Â % for electrons and photons up to 60Â GeV transverse energy, rising to 40Â % for transverse energies above 500Â GeV.
