### Interaction of molecular Rydberg states with metal surfaces

Abstract:

The interaction between high-n Rydberg states of molecular hydrogen and metal surfaces has been investigated for the first time. Rydberg states of hydrogen possessing either 0 or 2 units of rotational angular momentum, defined by the quantum number N+ , and principal quantum numbers in the range n= 17 22 (for the N+= 2 states) and n=41-45 (for the N+= 0 states) are directed at a grazing angle onto a met...
