We propose a closed two-terminal Aharonov-Bohm (AB) interferometer which contains a double quantum dot to detect the coherent molecule-like states. This scheme is based on the measurement of AB oscillation properties by changing interdot coupling strength. By comparison with an open multiterminal AB setup, we find that due to the phase locking effect the initial phase of the AB oscillations changes from to with the increase of the interdot coupling. The crossover implies the transition from the nearly decoupled states with the increase of the to the merged artificial molecular states.
