Simple, paradigmatic systems are important tools in understanding strongly correlated systems. One such system is the Bose-Hubbard model, which can be realized using atoms in optical lattices with delta-function interactions. We report the first experimental observation of two features of the Bose-Hubbard model: superexchange via virtual molecules in excited bands and off-site contact interactions. Adiabatic sweeps confirm the creation of these excited-band molecules, exemplifying a new kind of Feshbach resonance.
