Title: Change of Nuclear Configurations in the Neutrinoless Double-β Decay of 130Te → 130Xe and 136Xe → 136Ba

The change in the configuration of valence protons between the initial and final states in the neutrinoless double-beta decay of Te-130 -> Xe-130 and of Xe-136 -> Ba-136 has been determined by measuring the cross sections of the (d,He-3) reaction with 101-MeV deuterons. Together with our recent determination of the relevant neutron configurations involved in the process, a quantitative comparison with the latest shell-model and interacting-boson-model calculations reveals significant discrepancies. These are the same calculations used to determine the nuclear matrix elements governing the rate of neutrinoless double-beta decay in these systems.
