We study the photodissociation chemistry of a quantum degenerate gas of bosonic triatomic ABC molecules, assuming two open rearrangement channels ( AB+C or A+BC). The equations of motion are equivalent to those of a parametric multimode laser, resulting in an exponential buildup of macroscopic mode populations. By exponentially amplifying a small differential in the single-particle rate coefficients, Bose stimulation leads to a nearly complete selectivity of the collective N-body process… CONTINUE READING
