Status of the XENON100 Dark Matter Experiment at LNGS (20'+5')
 
The XENON100 experiment aims to detect cold dark matter particles via their 
elastic
collisions with xenon nuclei. An ultra-low background, two-phase time projection
chamber  with a total of 170 kg of xenon (70 kg in the target region and 100 kg 
in
the active shield)  has been installed at the Gran Sasso Underground Laboratory 
and
is currently in commissioning phase. I will review the design and performance of 
the 
detector and its associated systems, based on initial calibration runs.
