Title
Formation of molecules near a Feshbach resonance in a 1D optical lattice
Author
Abstract
We study the molecular behavior of two atoms interacting near a Feshbach resonance in the presence of a 1D periodic potential. The critical value of the scattering length needed to produce a molecule and the binding energy at resonance are calculated as a function of the intensity of the periodic potential. Because of the nonseparability of the center of mass and relative motion, the binding energy depends on the quasimomentum of the molecule. This has dramatic consequences on the molecular tunneling properties, which become strongly dependent on the scattering length.
