The Totem experiment, installed in the interaction point 5 at LHC, has charged particle detectors that cover a pseudorapidity range up to 6.4 for inelastic detection, and two set of Roman Pots stations, one at 147 meters and the second at 220 meters from IP5, on both beams that could measure scattered protons. The 2010-2011 data tacking campaign allowed the measurement of the differential P-P elastic cross section from 0.02
