The Taishan Antineutrino Observatory — •Hans Theodor Josef Steiger — Cluster of Excellence PRISMA+, Staudingweg 9, 55128 Mainz — Johannes Gutenberg Universität Mainz, Staudingerweg 7, 55128 Mainz — Physik-Department, Technische Universität München, James-Franck-Str. 1, 85748 Garching, Germany

The TAO (Taishan Antineutrino Observatory) detector is aiming for a measurement of the reactor neutrino spectrum at very low distances (<30m) to the core with a groundbreaking resolution better than 2 % at 1 MeV. The TAO experiment will realize the unprecedented neutrino detection rate of about 2000 per day, which is approximately 30 times the rate in the JUNO main detector. In order to achieve its goals, TAO is relying on yet to be developed, cutting-edge technology, both in photosensor and liquid scintillator (LS) development which is expected to have an impact on future neutrino and Dark Matter detectors. In this talk TAO's design, physics prospects as well as the status of its construction will be presented, together with a short excursion into its rich R&D program with a special focus on the German contribution to the development of the novel gadolinium-loaded liquid scintillator. This work is supported by the Cluster of Excellence PRISMA+ at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz and the DFG research unit JUNO.
