Backgrounds and Sensitivity Expectations for XENON100 (15'+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 active 
region)  has been installed at the Gran Sasso Underground Laboratory and is 
currently in commissioning phase. We 
present background predictions based on Monte Carlo simulations with input 
from screening of detector and shield 
materials.  We show the expected sensitivity for spin-independent and spin-
dependent cross sections on nucleons 
and compare with theoretical predictions from physics beyond the Standard 
Model.
