Title: Measurement of $$\nu_{\mu}$$ and $$\bar{\nu}_{\mu}$$ Neutral Current $$\pi^{0} \rightarrow \gamma\gamma$$ Production in the ArgoNeuT Detector

The ArgoNeuT collaboration reports the first measurement of neutral current $$\pi^{0}$$ production in $$\nu_{\mu}$$-argon and $$\bar{\nu}_{\mu}$$-argon scattering. This measurement was performed using the ArgoNeuT liquid argon time projection chamber deployed at Fermilab's NuMI neutrino beam with an exposure corresponding to 1.2$$\times 10^{20}$$ protons-on-target from the Fermilab Main Injector and a mean energy for $$\nu_{\mu}$$ of 9.6~GeV and for $$\bar{\nu}_{\mu}$$ of 3.6~GeV. We compare the measured cross section and kinematic distributions to predictions from the GENIE and NuWro neutrino interaction event generators.
