Abstract

We investigate the process of production of ultracold molecules in an ultracold bosonic system with particle interaction via designing a magnetic field pulse train near a Feshbach resonance. This technique offers a high conversion efficiency up to 100% by tuning the pulse durations appropriately. The molecular conversion efficiency is related to the duration of each pulse, which can be derived analytically. It is found that the conversion efficiency is insensitive to the first pulse, highly sensitive to the second one, and very insensitive to the third one. The effects of particle interaction on conversion process are discussed as well.
