Finite-range corrections near a Feshbach resonance and their role in the Efimov effect
We have measured the binding energy of 7Li Feshbach molecules deep into the nonuniversal regime by associating atoms in a Bose-Einstein condensate with a modulated magnetic field. We extract the scattering length from these measurements, correcting for nonuniversal short-range effects using the field-dependent effective range. With this more precise determination of the Feshbach resonance parameters we reanalyze our previous data on the location of atom loss features produced by the Efimov effect [Pollack et al., Science 326, 1683 (2009)]. We find the measured locations of the three- and four-body Efimov features to be consistent with universal theory at the 20%-30% level.
