The PADME collaboration aims to search for signals of a light dark photon A′ using the beam of the LNF LINAC. The experiment, approved by INFN at the end of 2015, foresees to detect A′, produced in the annihilation of positrons on a thin fixed target, by searching for missing mass signals. The detector construction is ongoing and should be completed within the end of 2017 in order to allow the collection of about 1013 positrons on target which are necessary to get a 10−3 sensitivity on the mixing parameter ε up to a dark photon mass of 23.7 MeV/c2.
