Formation of Feshbach molecules in the presence of artificial spin-orbit
coupling and Zeeman fields

Doga Murat Kurkcuoglu, C. A. R. Sa de Melo
We derive general conditions for the emergence of singlet Feshbach molecules in the presence of artificial Zeeman fields for arbritary mixtures of Rashba and Dresselhaus spin-orbit orbit coupling in two or three dimensions. We focus on the formation of two-particle bound states resulting from interactions between ultra-cold spin-1/2 fermions, under the assumption that interactions are short-ranged and occur only in the s-wave channel. In this case, we calculate explicitly binding energies of Feshbach molecules and analyze their dependence on spin-orbit couplings, Zeeman fields, interactions and center of mass momentum, paying particular attention to the experimentally relevant case of spin-orbit couplings with equal Rashba and Dresselhaus (ERD) amplitudes.
