Anomalous lifetimes of ultracold complexes decaying into a single channel
We investigate the lifetimes of complexes formed in ultracold molecule collisions. Employing both transition-state theory and a non-Hermitian microscopic model, we examine processes that can extend the lifetime of complexes beyond that predicted by Rice-Ramsperger-Kassel-Marcus (RRKM) theory. We focus on complexes that possess only one open channel, and find that the extreme distribution of widths for this case favors low decay rates.
