Abstract

The matter-wave amplifier which uses a feshback resonance to form quasibound molecules from an atomic-bose-einstein condensate (BEC), for vibrational ground state molecules, was discussed. The quasibound molecules are driven in to their stable vibrational ground state via a two-photon Raman transition inside an optical cavity. The pair of atoms were in a BEC were coupled to a quasibound state via a feshback resonance. The result show that the amplification of ground state molecules was achieved by using strongly damped cavity mode for the transition from the electronically excited molecules to the molecular ground state.
