The possibility of inhibiting three-body recombination in atomic Bose-Einstein condensates was discussed. It was found that the pulses result in the periodic change in the phase of the molecular state by π. This lead to destructive interference between the decay amplitudes. Results show that the decay rate can be reduced by several orders of magnitude.
