Scattering length of the ground state Mg + Mg collision


We have constructed the XΣg potential for the collision between two ground state Mg atoms and analyzed the effect of uncertainties in the shape of the potential on scattering properties at ultra-cold temperatures. This potential reproduces the experimental term values to 0.2 cm−1 and has a scattering length of +1.4(5) nm where the error is prodominantly due… (More)
