The Double Chooz experiment is the first of the next wave of reactor experiments searching for a non-vanishing value of the mixing angle θ13. The experimental concept and detector design are presented, and the most pertinent backgrounds are discussed. Operation of the far detector began in early 2011. Installation of the near detector will occur in 2012. Double Chooz has the capacity to measure sin2(2θ13) to 3σ if sin2(2θ13) > 0.05 or exclude sin2(2θ13) down to 0.03 at 90% for Δm2 31 = 2.5 × 10−3 eV2 with three years of data with both near and far detectors.
