Understanding nuclear effects in neutrino interactions, particularly on argon, will be critical for the future success of neutrino oscillation experiments. One channel that potentially allows these effects to be probed is the CCQE-like channel where a single muon and no pions are produced. Liquid argon time projection chambers allow unprecedented resolution of the hadronic side of neutrino interactions on heavy nuclei. Different models and generators make very different predictions for the kinematics and multiplicity of protons in these interactions, and MicroBooNE will be able to collect enough data in the first year of running to begin probing this previously unmeasured part of phase space.
