Characterizing quasibound states from coupled-channel scattering calculations can be a laborious task, involving extensive manual iteration and fitting. We present an automated procedure, based on the phase shift or S-matrix eigenphase sum, that reliably converges on a quasibound state (or scattering resonance) from some distance away. It may be used for both single-channel and multichannel scattering. It produces the energy and width of the state and the phase shift of the background…

Feshbach resonances and molecule formation in ultracold mixtures of Rb and Yb(P3) atoms
We have investigated magnetically tunable Feshbach resonances in ultracold collisions of Rb with Yb in its metastable P2 and P0 states, using coupled-channel scattering and bound-state calculations.

Observation of Efimov Universality across a Nonuniversal Feshbach Resonance in ^{39}K.
Three-atom inelastic scattering in ultracold ^{39}K near a Feshbach resonance of intermediate coupling strength is studied to ensure high accuracy on the measurements of these features at large-magnitude scattering lengths.

Feshbach resonances, weakly bound molecular states, and coupled-channel potentials for cesium at high magnetic fields
We explore the scattering properties of ultracold ground-state Cs atoms at magnetic fields between 450 G (45 mT) and 1000 G. We identify 17 previously unreported Feshbach resonances, including two

We compare and contrast the wide Feshbach resonances and the corresponding weakly bound states in the lowest scattering channels of ultracold Li6 and Li7. We use high-precision measurements of
Estimating Bounds on Collisional Relaxation Rates of Spin-Polarized 87Rb Atoms at Ultracold Temperatures
After testing the effect of systematically modifying the short-range form of the molecular potentials over a reasonable range, and introducing the best estimate of the second-order spin-orbit interaction, it is estimated that in the low temperature limit the rate coefficient for loss of Rb atoms from the f = 2,m = 2 state is between 0.4 × 10−15 cm3/s.
Towards the production of ultracold ground-state RbCs molecules: Feshbach resonances, weakly bound states, and the coupled-channel model
We have studied interspecies scattering in an ultracold mixture of 87Rb and 133Cs atoms, both in their lowest-energy spin states. The three-body loss signatures of 30 incoming s- and p-wave magnetic

Production of cold molecules via magnetically tunable Feshbach resonances
Magnetically tunable Feshbach resonances were employed to associate cold diatomic molecules in a series of experiments involving both atomic Bose and two-spin-component Fermi gases. This review

A universal formula is provided for the lifetime of diatomic molecules produced in cold atomic gases via magnetically tunable Feshbach resonances that relates their decay to the scattering length and the loss rate constant for inelastic spin relaxation.
