We report results from searches for new physics with low-energy electronic recoil data recorded with the XENON1T detector, with an exposure of 0.65 t-y and an unprecedentedly low background rate of $76 \pm 2_{stat}$ events/(t y keV) between 1-30 keV. An excess over known backgrounds is observed below 7 keV, rising towards lower energies and prominent between 2-3 keV. The solar axion model has a 3.5$\sigma$ significance, and a three-dimensional 90% confidence surface is reported for axion…
