The existence of the Efimov effect is drastically affected by the dimensionality of the space in which the system is embedded. The effective spatial dimension containing an atomic cloud can be continuosly modified by compressing it in one or two directions. In the present paper we determine, for a general $AAB$ system formed by two identical bosons $A$ and a third particle $B$, the dimensionsality $D$ for which the Efimov effect can exist for different values of the mass ratio $\mathpzc{A}=m_B…

Dimensional Effects in Efimov Physics

Efimov physics is drastically affected by the change of spatial dimensions. Efimov states occur in a tridimensional (3D) environment, but disappear in two (2D) and one (1D) dimensions. In this paper,

Efimov effect in a D-dimensional Born–Oppenheimer approach

We study a three-body system, formed by two identical heavy bosons and a light particle, in the Born–Oppenheimer approximation for an arbitrary dimension D. We restrict D to the interval 2 < D < 4,

Three identical bosons: Properties in noninteger dimensions and in external fields

Three-body systems that are continuously squeezed from a three-dimensional (3D) space into a two-dimensional (2D) space are investigated. Such a squeezing can be obtained by means of an external

Conformality lost in Efimov physics

A general mechanism for the loss of conformal invariance is the merger and disappearance of an infrared fixed point and an ultraviolet fixed point of a renormalization group flow. We show explicitly

Efimov States of Three Unequal Bosons in Non-integer Dimensions

The Efimov effect for three bosons in three dimensions requires two infinitely large s-wave scattering lengths. We assume two identical particles with very large scattering lengths interacting with a

Emergence of N-Body Tunable Interactions in Universal Few-Atom Systems

A three-atom molecule AAB, formed by two identical bosons A and a distinct one B, is studied by considering coupled channels close to a Feshbach resonance. It is assumed that the subsystems AB and AA

Efimov resonance position near a narrow Feshbach resonance in $^6$Li-$^{133}$Cs mixture

In the vicinity of a narrow Feshbach resonances Efimov features are expected to be characterized by the resonance’s properties rather than the van der Waals length of the interatomic potential.

Cold-atom–dimer reaction rates with He4, Li6,7 , and Na23

Atom-dimer exchange and dissociation reaction rates are predicted for different combinations of two $^4$He atoms and one of the alkaline species among $^{6}$Li, $^{7}$Li and $^{23}$Na, by using



Squeezing the Efimov effect

The quantum mechanical three-body problem is a source of continuing interest due to its complexity and not least due to the presence of fascinating solvable cases. The prime example is the Efimov

Role of the intraspecies scattering length in the Efimov scenario with large mass difference

We experimentally and theoretically study the effect of the intraspecies scattering length onto the heteronuclear Efimov scenario, following up on our earlier observation of Efimov resonances in an

Efimov physics: a review

These experiments revealed that the previously undetermined three-body parameter introduced in the Efimov theory to stabilise the three- body attraction typically scales with the range of atomic interactions.

Evidence for Efimov quantum states in an ultracold gas of caesium atoms

The observation of an Efimov resonance in an ultracold gas of caesium atoms is reported and represents a starting point with which to explore the universal properties of resonantly interacting few-body systems.

Heteronuclear Efimov Scenario with Positive Intraspecies Scattering Length.

The three-body parameter at the three- body scattering threshold and the scaling factor between consecutive Efimov resonances are found to be controlled by the scattering length between the two bosons, approximately independent of short-range physics.

Observation of Efimov resonances in a mixture with extreme mass imbalance.

We observe two consecutive heteronuclear Efimov resonances in an ultracold Li-Cs mixture by measuring three-body loss coefficients as a function of magnetic field near a Feshbach resonance. The first

Efimov trimers under strong confinement

The dimensionality of a system can fundamentally impact the behaviour of interacting quantum particles. Classic examples range from the fractional quantum Hall effect to high temperature

Universality in few‐body systems with large scattering length

Effective Field Theory (EFT) provides a powerful framework that exploits a separation of scales in physical systems to perform systematically improvable, model‐independent calculations. Particularly
