## Latest progress report and future plan

The PandaX-II experiment is completed and the PandaX-4T experiment is under installation. The future PandaX program will focus on the following two main directions:

1. Develop PandaX-4T into a multi-purpose liquid xenon experiment, to push further the dark matter search and other physics topics;
2. Develop and operate a 100-kg high pressure gas TPC (HpgTPC), PandaX-III, as a pathfinder for a tracking calorimeter to search for $0\nu\beta\beta$ in ${}^{136}Xe$.

## PandaX-II 54 Ton-day Results Published and Highlighted

Recent result from PandaX-II was published on Physical Review Letter (Phys. Rev. Lett. 119, 181302, "Editor's Suggestion") on October 30, 2017, back-to-back with the first result from XENON1T experiment. The papers are highlighted by a Physics "Viewpoint" commentary by Dan Hooper from FNAL and Univ. of Chicago, commenting that “...

## PandaX-II released the official 54-ton-day WIMP search results

The PandaX-II collaboration released the official WIMP search results using 54 ton-day exposure on Aug. 23, 2017. No excess events were found above the expected background. The most stringent upper limit on spin-independent WIMP-nucleon cross section was set for a WIMP mass greater than $100 GeV/c^{2}$, with the lowest exclusion at $8.6\times10^{-47} cm^{2}$ at $40 GeV/c^{2}$. The result reported here is more conservative than the preliminary result shown during the TeVPA2017 conference, due to the adoption of updated photon/electron detection efficiencies.

## The future plan of the PandaX experiment

The PandaX observatory uses xenon as target and detector to search for WIMP particles as well as neutrinoless double beta decay ($0\nu\beta\beta$) in ${}^{136}Xe$. At present, the PandaX-II experiment is in operation in CJPL-I. The future PandaX program will pursue the following three main directions:

## The largest running dark-matter experiment has its first result: No finding yet with the world best sensitivity

Xiangdong Ji, Spokesperson and Project Leader of the PandaX experiment located in the China Jin-Ping underground Laboratory (CJPL), announced the first dark matter search results from the PandaX-II 500 kg liquid xenon detector in the 2016 International Identification of Dark Matter conference at Sheffield, UK in the evening of July 21, 2016 (Beijing Time). He reported that no trace of dark matter was observed with an exposure of 33,000 kg·day of liquid xenon, providing the newest constraints on the existence of dark matter.
