Abstract: This contribution summarizes the discovery potential of the Standard ModelHiggs boson using the $H \gamma \gamma$ decay with the ATLAS detector. Therelevant detector performance aspects of photon reconstruction, photonidentification and trigger issues are discussed. The potential of inclusive $H\gamma \gamma$ as well as Higgs boson searches in association with one or twohard jets are studied. The discovery potential is finally assessed using anunbinned multivariate maximum-likelihood fit with an expected integratedluminosity of $\approx 10 fb^{-1}$.
