We present finite size scaling calculations of the critical parameters for binding two electrons to a finite linear dipole field. This approach gives very accurate results for the critical parameters by using a systematic expansion in a finite basis set. A complete ground state stability diagram for the dipole-bound dianion is obtained using accurate variational and finite size scaling calculations. We also study the near threshold behavior of the ground state energy by calculating its critical exponent.
