Combining the measured binding energies of four of the most weakly bound rovibrational levels of the $^{87}$Rb$_2$ molecule with the results of two other recent high-precision rubidium experiments, we obtain exceptionally strong constraints on the atomic interaction parameters in a highly model independent analysis. The comparison of $^{85}$Rb and $^{87}$Rb data, where the two isotopes are related by a mass scaling procedure, plays a crucial role. Using the consistent picture of the interactions that thus arises we are led to predictions for scattering lengths, clock shifts, Feshbach resonance fields and widths with an unprecedented level of accuracy. To demonstrate this, we predict two Feshbach resonances in mixed-spin scattering channels at easily accessible magnetic field strengths, which we expect to play a role in the damping of...
We report the observation of three p-wave Feshbach resonances of $^6$Li atoms in the lowest hyperfine state $f=1/2$. The positions of the resonances are in good agreement with theory. We study the lifetime of the cloud in the vicinity of the Feshbach resonances and show that depending on the spin states, 2- or 3-body mechanisms are at play. In the case of dipolar losses, we observe a non-trivial temperature dependence that is well explained by a simple model.
