Abstract

Two of the outstanding open questions in physics are the nature of dark matter and the fundamental nature of neutrinos. DARWIN is a next-generation experiment aiming to reach a dark matter sensitivity limited by the irreducible neutrino backgrounds. The core of the detector will have a 40 ton liquid xenon target operated as a dual-phase time projection chamber. The unprecedented large xenon mass, the exquisitely low radioactive background and the low energy threshold will allow for a diversification of the physics program beyond the search for dark matter particles: DARWIN will be a true low-background, low-threshold astroparticle physics observatory. I will present the status of the project, its science reach, and discuss the main R&D topics.
