The DArKside (DS) program aims to detect the so-called WIMPs (Weakly Interactive Massive Particle) which are considered the best candidates for Dark Matter. WIMPs elastically scattering would be detected by using a twophase Time Projection Chamber (TPC) based on argon nuclei target. Thanks to the properties of the scintillation and ionization signals detected by the TPC it is possible to discriminate a WIMP-induced signal from one induced by background. DS-50 started its data taking on November 2013 with atmospheric argon (later with underground argon depleted in 39Ar.)
