Description

The XENON1T detector has been recently deployed at Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso. The experiment features, as target for dark matter, a two-phase Xenon Time Projection Chamber with a 2-tonne active mass. Its unprecedented dimension and the expected low background will allow XENON1T to reach, with a 2 t∙y exposure, a sensitivity to spin-independent WIMP-nucleon interactions of about 1.6∙10^-47 cm^2 for a 50 GeV/c^2, an improvement of about two orders of magnitude with respect to its predecessor XENON100. I'll report about the status of the detector commissioning.
