Exploring Exotic Atomic and Molecular Collisions at Ultracold Temperatures

Author
Abstract
<p>New experimental techniques have increased the scope of atomic and molecular control at\&nbsp;<span style="line-height: 1.6em;">ultracold temperatures. To understand molecular collisions and collisions between atoms with large\&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">electronic spin, we extend multichannel quantum defect theory to describe scattering in the case\&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">of high-partial-wave angular momentum and long-range anisotropic interactions. The efficiency\&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">and accuracy of these calculations facilitate the prediction and characterization of Fano-Feshbach\&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">resonances.</span></p>
