Abstract

Ar-39 and Ar-42 are possible sources of background in large volume argon based detectors for the study of low energy neutrino events, as proposed for the ICARUS experiment. The production of these nuclides from neutron capture by atmospheric argon is estimated by taking into account both cosmic rays and contributions from nuclear explosions.
