The Taishan Antineutrino Observatory (TAO or JUNO-TAO) is a satellite detector of the Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory (JUNO) and will provide a precise measurement of the non-oscillated reactor antineutrino spectra with unprecedented accuracy in energy resolution, improving the sensitivity of JUNO on mass hierarchy study. Furthermore, JUNO-TAO has an extensive research program in various fields: in nuclear databases, in searching the signature of a sterile neutrino, and in the verification of the detector technology for reactor monitoring and safeguard applications. TAO is a detector based on liquid scintillator technology and will be placed near one core of the Taishan Nuclear Power Plant in China, 53km away from the JUNO site. In this manuscript, TAO’s design, its physics potential, and the current status of the R&D will be presented.
