We describe the collisional interaction between two different atoms that are trapped in a harmonic potential. The atoms are exposed to a magnetic field, which is modulated in the vicinity of an s -wave Feshbach resonance, and we study the formation of molecular bound states and excited states of the trapped system with nontrivial angular correlations.
