Abstract content

0$\nu\beta\beta$ is a nuclear process under investigation by numerous experiments, which if detected would demonstrate that neutrinos are Majorana particles. 0$\nu\beta\beta$ samples a wide range of intermediate forbidden nuclear transitions, which are governed by the quenched axial vector coupling constant ($g_A^{eff}$), the uncertainty of which plays a pivotal role in the uncertainty of the nuclear matrix elements. The recently reexamined role of $g_A^{eff}$ in these transitions has prompted measurements of $g_A^{eff}$ in highly forbidden decays via beta shape investigation with high resolution and low threshold bolometers. In this poster, we present measurements performed on an $LiInSe_{2}$ bolometer, with a 4th order forbidden decay spectrum in In-115. This decay is sensitive to similar nuclear effects as 0$\nu\beta\beta$. We will discuss the obtained results along with possible impacts this study has for future 0$\nu\beta\beta$ measurements.
