The goal of the Double Chooz reactor neutrino experiment is to search for the neutrino mixing parameter θ13. Double Chooz will use two identical detectors at 150 m and 1.05 km distance from the reactor cores. The near detector is used to monitor the reactor ve flux while the second is dedicated to the search for a deviation from the expected (1/distance)2 behavior. This two detector concept will allow a relative normalization systematic error of ca. 0.6 %. The expected sensitivity for sin213 is then in the range 0.02 - 0.03 after three years of data taking. The antineutrinos will be detected in a liquid scintillator through the capture on protons followed by a gamma cascade, produced by the neutron capture on Gd.
