In atomic Fermi gases, the pairing character changes from BCS‐like to BEC‐like when one decreases the threshold energy of the Feshbach resonance. With this crossover, the system enters the strong‐coupling regime through the population enhancement of diatom molecules, and the vortex structure becomes much different from well‐known core structures in BCS superfluid since the superfluid order parameter is given by a sum of BCS pairs and BEC molecular condensates. In this paper, we study the structure of a vortex by numerically solving the generalized Bogoliubov‐de Gennes equation derived from the fermion‐boson model and clarify how the vortex structure changes with the threshold energy of the Feshbach resonance. We find that the diatom boson condensate enhances the matter density depletion inside the vortex core and the discreteness of localized quasi‐particle spectrum.
