Semiclassical analysis of Rydberg molecules — •Gordana Palavestric, Jörg Main, and Günter Wunner — 1. Institut für Theoretische Physik, Universität Stuttgart, 70550 Stuttgart

In cold gases ultra-long range Rydberg molecules have been predicted theoretically [1] and recently observed experimentally [2]. The molecular binding can be described with a Fermi pseudo-potential and the Born-Oppenheimer approximation. We present a semiclassical model to describe the interaction. The electron of the highly excited Rydberg atom is scattered at the ground state atom. The transferred momentum causes a force on the neutral atom. We solve the classical equations of motion and investigate the initial condition for the bound dynamics of the “Rydberg molecule”.
