FASER, the ForwArd Search ExpeRiment, is an experiment conceived at UCI and located 480 m downstream of the ATLAS interaction point at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), along the beam collision axis. FASER and its sub-detector FASERnu have two physics goals: (1) to search for new light and very weakly-interacting particles related to dark matter, and (2) to detect and study the world’s most-energetic man-made neutrinos. FASER was designed, constructed, installed, and commissioned during 2019-2022 and has been taking physics data since the start of LHC Run 3 in July 2022. This talk will present the status of the experiment, including detector design, performance, and first physics results from Run 3 data
