Title: Double-beta decay of $$^{130}\hbox {Te}$$ 130 Te to the first $$0^+$$ 0 + excited state of $$^{130}\hbox {Xe}$$ 130 Xe with CUORE-0

Abstract

We report on a search for double beta decay of $$^{130}$$Te to the first $$0^{+}$$ excited state of $$^{130}$$Xe using a 9.8 kg$$\cdot$$yr exposure of $$^{130}$$Te collected with the CUORE-0 experiment. In this work we exploit different topologies of coincident events to search for both the neutrinoless and two-neutrino double-decay modes. We find no evidence for either mode and place lower bounds on the half-lives: $$\tau^{0\nu}_{0^+}>7.9\cdot 10^{23}$$ yr and $$\tau^{2\nu}_{0^+}>2.4\cdot 10^{23}$$ yr. Here, combining our results with those obtained by the CUORICINO experiment, we achieve the most stringent constraints available for these processes: $$\tau^{0\nu}_{0^+}>1.4\cdot 10^{24}$$ yr and $$\tau^{2\nu}_{0^+}>2.5\cdot 10^{23}$$ yr.
