The observation of molecules produced from a Bose-Einstein condensate of atomic 87Rb using Feshbach resonance was discussed. It was found that a Stern-Gerlach field was applied in order to spatially separate the molecules from the remaining atoms. It was observed that the measured position of the molecule yielded their magnetic moment. Analysis show an avoided crossing of two bound states at a field value slightly below the Feshbach resonance.
