Latest Rydberg atom Stories
Researchers from the University of Bonn have just shown how a single atom can be split into its two halves, pulled apart and put back together again.
Does antimatter behave differently in gravity than matter?
Rice University physicists have gone to extremes to prove that Isaac Newton's classical laws of motion can apply in the atomic world: They've built an accurate model of part of the solar system inside a single atom of potassium.
An international team measures the charge radius of the hydrogen nucleus and stumbles across some mysteries of physics.
In an achievement that could help enable fast quantum computers, University of Michigan physicists have built a better Rydberg atom trap.
A group of University of Oklahoma researchers led by Dr. James P. Shaffer, Homer L. Dodge Department of Physics and Astronomy, have discovered giant Rydberg molecules with a bond as large as a red blood cell.
Scientists say the Rydberg molecule, a molecule that until now existed only in theory, has finally been created.
Nearly a century after Danish physicist Niels Bohr offered his planet-like model of the hydrogen atom, a Rice University-led team of physicists has created giant, millimeter-sized atoms that resemble it more closely than any other experimental realization yet achieved.
