Symmetry breaking of electronic structure configurations resemble classical phase transitions.

Finite Size Scaling method can be used to obtain critical parameters for the quantum Hamiltonian: Critical charges, critical dipole and quadrupole-bound anions,…

Quantum phase transitions can be used to explain and predict the stability of atoms, molecules and quantum dots.

Multiply charged negative atomic anions can be stabilized in super-intense laser fields.
