Xe at the LSC. A large-scale prototype of a high-pressure gas-Xenon electroluminescent TPC (NEW) is being operated since 2016, proving both the excellent energy resolution and the topological capabilities for background rejection. NEW is currently measuring the backgrounds for the &lt;span class="MathJax"&gt;&lt;span class="math"&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;span class="mrow"&gt;&lt;span class="mi"&gt;&amp;beta;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class="mi"&gt;&amp;beta;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;

. The Rn-induced electron background has been characterized allowing for the validation of the MC expectations. The corresponding extrapolation to the NEXT-100 detector demonstrates that Rn will not be a dominant background source.
