Low Energy Few-Body Physics of Three and Four- Particle Two-Component Systems under 1D Confinement

The energy spectrum, atom-dimer scattering length, and atom-trimer scattering length for systems of three and four ultracold atoms with δ- function interactions in one dimension are presented as a function of the relative mass ratio of the interacting atoms. The Born-Oppenheimer approach is used to treat three-body (HHL) systems of one light and two heavy atoms, as well as four-body (HHHL) systems of one light and three heavy atoms. Zero-range interactions of arbitrary strength are assumed between different atoms, but the heavy atoms are assumed to be noninteracting among themselves. Both fermionic and bosonic heavy atoms are considered.
