The ν0h9/2 and ν0i13/2 strength at Xe137, a single neutron outside the N=82 shell closure, has been determined using the Xe136(α,He3)Xe137 reaction carried out at 100 MeV. We confirm the recent observation of the second 13/2+ state and reassess previous data on the 9/2- states, obtaining spectroscopic factors. These new data provide additional constraints on predictions of the same single-neutron excitations at Sn133.
