"Dipole – Dipole Induced Transitions in Rydberg Atom Pairs "

Rydberg Atoms have pronounced dipole moments and dipole – dipole interactions lead to the pairing up of Rydberg atoms to form transient diatomic Rydberg molecules under special conditions. Resonant microwave transitions from pairs of Rb atoms have been observed and a configuration interaction model can be used to understand this phenomena.
