Borromean molecules

Abstract : For some values of the constituent masses m_i, the hydrogen-like molecule (m_1^+,m_2^+,m_3^-,m_4^-) is stable with respect to spontaneous dissociation into two neutral atoms, while none of its three-body subsystems such as (m_1^+,m_2^+,m_3^-) is stable. This occurs in particular in the neighbourhood of the (M^+,m^+,M^-,m^-) configuration with M/m=2, as for instance for the molecule (p,d,\bar{p},\bar{d}) involving an antiproton and an antideuteron.
