Latest Rydberg state Stories
Does antimatter behave differently in gravity than matter?
In an achievement that could help enable fast quantum computers, University of Michigan physicists have built a better Rydberg atom trap.
Scientists say the Rydberg molecule, a molecule that until now existed only in theory, has finally been created.
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Max Planck Institute for Physics in Germany believe they can achieve a significant increase in the accuracy of one of the fundamental constants of nature by boosting an electron to an orbit as far as possible from the atomic nucleus that binds it. The experiment, outlined in a new paper, would not only mean more accurate identifications of elements in everything from stars to environmental pollutants but also could...
