Description

DEAP-3600 is single-phase liquid argon (LAr) direct-detection dark matter experiment, operating 2 km underground at SNOLAB, Sudbury, Canada. The detector consists of 3279 kg of LAr contained in a spherical acrylic vessel.
In this talk, a summary of the second dark matter search analysis of a 758 tonne-day exposure will be presented with emphasis given to modelling the detector backgrounds.
