Abstract: We experimentally demonstrate Cs2 Feshbach molecules well above thedissociation threshold, which are stable against spontaneous decay on thetimescale of one second. An optically trapped sample of ultracold dimers isprepared in an l-wave state and magnetically tuned into a region with negativebinding energy. The metastable character of these molecules arises from thelarge centrifugal barrier in combination with negligible coupling to stateswith low rotational angular momentum. A sharp onset of dissociation withincreasing magnetic field is mediated by a crossing with a g-wave dimer stateand facilitates dissociation on demand with a well defined energy.
