We conducted simulations of Rydberg atoms in a magneto-optical trap using the supercomputer available on campus and the COMET supercomputer provided by the NSF. Our research focused on the angular dependence of the long range interaction between Rydberg atoms. We simulated randomly distributed atoms alligned with a magnetic and electric field. We compared the simulated interaction rates for different electric field directions.
