Observation of an Efimov resonance in an ultracold mixture of atoms and weakly bound dimers

by S. Knoop, F. Ferlaino, M. Berninger, M. Mark, H.-C. Nägerl, R. Grimm
Abstract:
We discuss our recent observation of an atom-dimer Efimov resonance in an ultracold mixture of Cs atoms and Cs 2 Feshbach molecules [Nature Phys. 5, 227 (2009)]. We review our experimental procedure and present additional data involving a non-universal g -wave dimer state, to contrast our previous results on the universal s -wave dimer. We resolve a seeming discrepancy when quantitatively comparing our experimental findings with theoretical results from effective field theory.doi=10.1088/1742-6596/194/1/012064
