Title: Experimental study of the rearrangements of valence protons and neutrons amongst single-particle orbits during double- β decay in Mo 100

The rearrangements of protons and neutrons amongst the valence single-particle orbitals during double-beta decay of Mo-100 have been determined by measuring cross sections in (d, p), (p, d), (He-3, a), and (He-3, d) reactions on Mo-98,Mo-100 and Ru-100,Ru-102 targets. The deduced nucleon occupancies reveal significant discrepancies when compared with theoretical calculations; the same calculations have previously been used to determine the nuclear matrix element associated with the decay probability of double-beta decay of the Mo-100 system.
