  • We show that the recently measured magnetic field dependence of three-body loss in a three-component mixture of ultracold {sup 6}Li atoms [T. B. Ottenstein et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 101, 203202 (2008); J. H. Huckans et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 102, 165302 (2009)] can be explained by the presence of a universal trimer state. Previous work suggested a universal trimer state as a probable explanation, yet it failed to get good agreement between theory and experiment over the whole range of magnetic… CONTINUE READING
