Rydberg atoms occur in nature, but are delicate - a small disturbance can tear the distant electron from its orbit and leave behind the positively charged rump of the atom (ion).
The Rydberg electron is allowed tocontinue to absorb energy, so long as that energy is precisely of an amount that wil propel the electron to the next trajectory allowed by the interference pattern.
At low energies the orbits of Rydberg electrons are simple and predictable as the ellipses of the Bohr model, but as the energy increases the motion becomes more agitated, classical chaos suddenly sets in.

Educated at the University of Lund, Rydberg received his bachelor's degree in 1875 and his doctorate in mathematics in 1879.
Rydberg is best known for his theoretical studies of spectral series.
Using wave numbers instead of wavelengths in his calculations, he was able to arrive at a relatively simple expression that related the various lines in the spectra of chemical elements.

Rydberg began by classifying spectral lines into three types: principal (strong, persistent lines), sharp (weaker but well-defined lines), and diffuse (broader lines).
The formula expresses the wave number in terms of a constant common to all series (the Rydberg constant), two constants that are characteristic of the particular series, and an integer.
Rydberg then went on to produce another formula, which would express the frequency of every line in every series of an element.

From this observation he was able to formulate the Rydberg equation, E = -R /(n-m)[sup2 ] where E is the energy of the line in wave numbers, R is the Rydberg constant, n is the principle quantum number and m is the quantum defect.
The quantum defect describes how much the Rydberg series departs from the behavior of the Rydberg states of atomic hydrogen and is directly related to the interaction of the excited electron with the leftover ion core.
The Rydberg series is a set of bound states of the excited electron for a given set of excited electron angular momentum quantum numbers and ion core state.

Beginning with gentle keyboards and atmospheric guitar notes, this slow building number gently builds and rises up in heaviness before introducing tribal rhymed drums and a groove that is clearly audible without the unnecessary extras of times past.
Rydberg’s vocals were always a bit buried under the music in past releases, but for the first time he can be heard clearly, while the multi layered riffing has been stripped back to it’s bare minimum.

 Rydberg Constant History Summary   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Ordinary atomic optical spectra suggest that the motion of the electrons in the outer part of an atom depend as much on the interactions between the electrons as on the attractive forces between the electrons and the atomic nucleus, both forces being of about the same magnitude.
In 1890, the Swedish spectroscopist Johannes Rydberg (1854- 1919) identified a general relationship between the spectra of hydrogen and those of many other atoms.
Because Rydberg's formula includes a term characteristic of the hydrogen spectra, the formula has been interpreted to mean that the spectra that obey it are representative of the last step of a process by which a neutral atom is built up by capturing and binding electrons to a nucleus, one at a time.
