What is it about?
Controlling atomic and molecular collisions by exploiting interference between identical scattering pathways seems exotic and even impossible at room temperature. In this work, I point out that at very cold temperatures, it is possible to use electric fields to make desired collision channels indistinguishable and therefore susceptible to coherent control tools. I choose a specific atomic collision process (Li + Cs) to illustrate the effect.
