Inelastic Confinement-Induced Resonances in Low-Dimensional Quantum Systems

By Simon Sala, Philipp-Immanuel Schneider and Alejandro Saenz


A theoretical model is presented describing the confinement-induced resonances observed in the recent loss experiment of Haller et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 104, 153203 (2010)]. These resonances originate from possible molecule formation due to the coupling of center-of-mass and relative motion. A corresponding model is verified by ab initio calculations and predicts the resonance positions in 1D as well as in 2D confinement in agreement with the experiment. This resolves the contradiction of the experimental observations to previous theoretical predictions.Comment: 5 pages, 4 figure
