Title: The darkside awakens
Author: Davini,  S.
Abstract: The DarkSide program at LNGS aims to perform background-free WIMP searches using two phase liquid argon time projection chambers, with the ultimate goal of covering all parameters down to the so-called neutrino floor. One of the distinct features of the program is the use of underground argon with has a reduced content of the radioactive Ar-39 compared to atmospheric argon. The DarkSide Collaboration is currently operating the DarkSide-50 experiment, the first such WIMP detector using underground argon. Operations with underground argon indicate a suppression of Ar-39 by a factor (1.4 +/- 0.2) x 10(3) relative to atmospheric argon. The new results obtained with DarkSide-50 and the plans for the next steps of the DarkSide program, the 20 t fiducial mass DarkSide-20k detector and the 200 t fiducial Argo, are reviewed in this proceedings
