The atomic regime in which the interaction of the electron with an external magnetic field dominates the Coulomb interaction with the nucleus, relevant to pulsars, can be realized at laboratory magnetic fields for discrete autoionized states of hydrogen, at energies above the ionization limit. Approximate wave functions, energy levels, and electric dipole transition probabilities are presented for hydrogen, and an atomic beam absorption spectroscopy experiment at 50 kG is proposed to study this new regime.
