### Description

The isotopes of 8He and 9Li produced by cosmic-rays are a main source for backgrounds in reactor neutrino experiments. The isotope decays to a neutron and an electron and mimics an inverse beta decay of an electron antineutrino from reactors. The 8He/9Li background spectrum and rate are measured using the data taken by the RENO experiment, and compared the with Monte-Carlo prediction. In this presentation, we report the measured cosmogenic background spectrum and rate at RENO.
