Description

The XENON collaboration has completed a search for WIMP-nucleon Spin-Independent elastic scattering using a one tonne-year exposure of XENON1T detector. The XENON1T experiment has an electronic recoil background of ~0.2 events/(tonne-day-keVee), the lowest ever achieved in any dark matter search experiments. This talk will describe the background modeling performed in this WIMPs search analysis.
