Utilizing six powerful nuclear reactors as antineutrino sources and eight identically designed underground detectors for a near-far relative measurement, the Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment has achieved unprecedented precision in measuring the neutrino mixing angle θ13 and the neutrino mass squared difference |Δm231|. With the largest sample of reactor antineutrino interactions ever collected to date, Daya Bay has also performed many measurements of reactor antineutrinos, such as the determination of total reactor antineutrino flux and spectrum, the extraction of individual antineutrino flux and spectra of the two dominant isotopes (235U and 239Pu). On Dec. 12, 2020, the experiment stopped data taking. The decommissioning is going smoothly. In this talk, I will present the latest results from Daya Bay.
