Abstract
SNO+ is a large volume liquid scintillator experiment for neutrino physics located at SNOLAB, Canada. Using the 12-m diameter acrylic vessel and the PMT array of the SNO detector, SNO+ has the primary physics goal of searching for the neutrinoless double-beta decay of the $^{130}$Te isotope. Data collected will also be used to explore additional physics topics such as reactor antineutrino oscillations, solar neutrinos, geoneutrinos, and to search for exotic physics. SNO+ completed its first phase as a pure-water Cherenkov detector, which focused on detector commissioning and calibration, and published its first physics results. Currently, the detector is completely filled with liquid scintillator, to which 1.3 tonnes of $^{130}$Te is expected to be loaded in late 2022.
