Title: Solar neutrino interactions with the double- β decay nuclei Se 82 ,   Mo 100 , and Nd 150

Solar neutrinos interact within double-beta decay (ββ) detectors and contribute to backgrounds for ββ experiments. Background contributions due to solar neutrino interactions with ββ nuclei of 82Se, 100Mo, and 150Nd are evaluated. They are shown to be significant for future high-sensitivity ββ experiments that may search for Majorana neutrino masses in the inverted-hierarchy mass region. In conclusion, the impact of solar neutrino backgrounds and their reduction are discussed for future ββ experiments.
