Abstract
The properties and behavior of a Ring Rydberg Composite are explicated. This system consists of a ring of ground state atoms centered on a Rydberg atom, whose electron elastically scatters off the ground state atoms. We transform the electronic Hamiltonian into a discrete tight-binding representation in which the on-site energies and long-range hopping between sites are controlled and mediated by the Rydberg electron. From this new representation, which to a large extent enables an analytic treatment, we derive scaling laws and analytic expressions for the wave functions and eigenspectrum. The interface between ring and Rydberg geometries leads to a range of rich properties which can be tuned as a function of ring size, number of scatterers, and principal quantum number.
