A precise knowledge of the ultracold scattering parameters is vital for most measurements performed with ultracold gases. The position of the Feshbach resonance for example is the main source of uncertainty for the determination of the Bertsch parameter. This parameter, which is universal for every strongly interacting fermionic system, rescales the energy of a resonantly interacting Fermi gas onto a non-interacting one. Its experimental determination strongly relies on the exact position of the Feshbach resonance.
We report on a measurement of the binding energy of a weakly bound molecular state in fermionic Li-6 with an improved accuracy utilizing radio-frequency spectroscopy with resolved trap-sideband resolution. The average error is reduced by more than a factor of 15 compared to previous measurements [Bartenstein et al., PRL 94,103201 (2005)]. This allows to determine the position of the Feshbach Resonance with significantly improved accuracy.
