Speakers

Primary authors

Description

XENON1T is the current experiment of the XENON dark matter search program based on dual-phase (liquid-gas) xenon time projection chambers (TPCs) of increasing target mass and decreasing background. The XENON1T detector is the first multi-ton scale TPC containing a total of 3200 kg of liquid xenon of which 2000 kg are active. A blind analysis of 1042 kg fiducial mass and 34.2 live days of data acquired between November 2016 and January 2017 was performed. This talk will summarize this first analysis, with emphasis on understanding detector stability, background reduction, calibration, and the modeling of the detector response and backgrounds for the dark matter search.
