Neutrinoless beta decay in the framework of a relativistic quark model
Abstract
The 0+ to 0+ neutrinoless double beta decay of the nuclei Ge76, Se82, Kr86, Cd114, Te(128,130) and Xe(134,136) is calculated starting from the Relativistic Harmonic oscillator Model (RHM) and using the protonneutron Quasiparticle Random Phase Approximation Approach (QRPA) to evaluate the nuclear structure matrix elements involved in the neutrinoless double beta decay amplitude. The quark current is evaluated using wave functions obtained from the Dirac equation with a harmonic confinement potential.
