rf spectroscopy is one of the most powerful probing techniques in the field of ultracold gases. We report on a novel rf spectroscopy scheme with which we can detect very weak signals of only a few atoms. Using this method, we extended the experimentally accessible photon-energies range by an order of magnitude compared to previous studies. We directly verify a universal property of fermions with short-range interactions which is a power-law scaling of the rf spectrum tail all the way up to the interaction scale. We also determine, with high precision, the trap average contact parameter for different interaction strength. Finally, we employ our technique to precisely measure the binding energy of Feshbach molecules in an extended range of magnetic fields. These data are used to extract a new calibration of the Feshbach resonance between the two lowest energy levels of K40.
