Submission + - Physicists create model solar system with Trojan A

Rocky Mudbutt writes: Physorg.com reports that graduate students at Rice University have created a Rydberg atom with a comma shaped wave function that mimics the Trojan asteroids associated with Jupiter. Using a linearly polarized sinusoidal electric field whose period slowly increased, the electron wave function was coerced into an orbit approximately the size of a period. Measuring this has shown that Bohr's prediction is correct, the classical and quantum descriptions of the orbiting electron wave packets match.
