The valence neutron composition of the 130Te and 130Xe ground states has been studied with a view to constraining calculations of the nuclear matrix element for the neutrinoless double-β decay of 130Te. Single-neutron adding and removing reactions on 128,130Te and 130,132Xe have been used to probe the vacancy of the 0g7/2, 1d5/2, 1d3/2, 2s1/2, and 0h11/2 orbitals. The change in the vacancy of these orbitals, obtained through a self-consistent determination of spectroscopic factors utilizing the...[Show more]
