Physicists find charge separation in a molecule consisting of two
identical atoms
November 25, 2011

"Electron density in a homonuclear molecule which behaves like a polar
dimer molecule. The size of this molecule is more than 1000 times
larger than usual molecules. Image: Science/AAAS "Physicists from the
University of Stuttgart show the first experimental proof of a
molecule consisting of two identical atoms that exhibits a permanent
electric dipole moment. This observation contradicts the classical
opinion described in many physics and chemistry textbooks. The work
was published in the journal Science yesterday."


It may contradict statements in some textbooks, but it's perfectly in line with standard physics - as the article explains. It doesn't imply that the electron has a dipole moment.
