We performed a high resolution study of 0 + states in 134 Ba using the 136 Ba ( p , t ) two-neutron transfer reaction. Our experiment shows a significant portion of the L = 0 pair-transfer strength concentrated at excited 0 + levels in 134 Ba . Potential implications in the context of 136 Xe → 136 Ba neutrinoless double beta decay matrix element calculations are briefly discussed.
