Once the molecule is formed, fusion can take place rapidly releasing the
energy. If the formation took place resonantly, it can break up through a
back decay. The branching ratio for fusion (W) versus back decay (1-W)
is given by Faifman et al. [133,70,71,72]).
The hyperfine state of
after the back decay was kept the same as
before the molecular formation. The outgoing energy of
was one of
the free parameters in the simulation.
