Rydberg matter is a condensed excited state made of highly excited atoms. State of art of research in the field of Rydberg matter is briefly reviewed. Special attention is focused on the contribution of Russian and Swedish scientists' groups to the analysis of this problem. Most attention is concentrated on physical principles of pseudopotential method and density functional theory used to describe the Rydberg matter. The description of Rydberg matter as an excited state becomes viable after…

A review is given of experimental studies of clusters of Rydberg matter (RM) with applications. This is a metallic type of matter with angular momentum l ≥ 1 for the conduction band electrons. The
Diffuse interstellar bands (DIB): co-planar doubly excited He and metal atoms embedded in Rydberg Matter
The interpretation of the more than 300 diffuse interstellar bands (DIBs) is one of the most long-standing problems in interstellar spectra since the two first bands were reported in 1921. We now

Sorption capacity of Rydberg matter (RM) clusters is examined for both electronegative and neutral molecules. Sorption isotherm of RM has been determined as a function of gas pressure and time. It is
Vibrational transitions in Rydberg matter clusters from stimulated Raman and Rabi‐flopping phase delay in the infrared
Recently, rotational spectra of giant Rydberg matter (RM) clusters were studied in the radio frequency range (Mol. Phys. 105 (2007) 933–939), giving high-precision bond distances in the nanometer
Sub-nanometer distances and cluster shapes in dense hydrogen and in higher levels of hydrogen Rydberg matter by phase-delay spectroscopy
The inter-atomic distances in potassium clusters of Rydberg matter (RM) at excitation levels nB = 4–8 were recently measured by phase-delay spectroscopy (Holmlid, J Nanopart Res 12: 273, 2010).

Ultra-dense deuterium D(−1) can be formed by a catalytic process from Rydberg Matter (RM) of deuterium as reported previously. Laser-induced inertial confinement fusion (ICF) has recently been
Meissner Effect in Ultra-Dense Protium p(l = 0, s = 2) at Room Temperature: Superconductivity in Large Clusters of Spin-Based Matter
Ultra-dense protium p(l = 0) is superfluid at room temperature, as is its more often studied deuterium counterpart D(l = 0). p(l = 0) can be deposited on surfaces by a source which produces a stream
