XENON1T is a dual-phase time-projection chamber, designed to detect dark matter particle interactions within a 2-ton liquid-xenon target with unprecedented sensitivity. The detector, located at the Laboratori Nazionale del Gran Sasso, has been fully operational since May 2016, including regular calibrations, background studies, and a continuously improving xenon purity. The ongoing acquisition of science data began in November 2016. A summary of the status, detector performance, and new results from the first science run of the XENON1T experiment will be presented.
