Abstract: We illustrate how to apply modern effective field-theory techniques and dimensional regularization to factorize the various scales, which appear in QED bound states at finite temperature. We focus here on the muonic hydrogen atom. Vacuum polarization effects make the physics of this atom at finite temperature very close to that of heavy quarkonium states. We comment on the implications of our results for these states in the quark gluon plasma. In particular, we estimate the effects of a finite-charm quark mass in the dissociation temperature of bottomonium.
