Description
A large set of astronomical and astrophysical measurements point towards the existence of Dark Matter but, at the moment, its nature is still mystery. The XENON collaboration, of which I am part, has been trying to address this puzzle by developing specialized, ultra low-background detectors of increasing sensitivity, capable of detecting the potential rare interactions of Dark Matter with ordinary matter. I will start this talk by introducing the big scientific question and then presenting the last detector of the XENON family, XENONnT. I will guide you through its working principle and highlight its innovations with respect to predecessors. Finally I will discuss a recent set of results, diving into details of the analysis and of the detector performance.
