Thanks, the link was informative. So they used a Paul trap (oscillating electric fields which would work for a single ion). The coulomb repulsion between pair of trapped ions is the added effect.

Intead of attraction, I believe the oscillation is caused by the molecules being in an laser "trap" making them bounce back and forth. But don't take my word for it, get all the details in:

Preparation and coherent manipulation of pure quantum states of a single molecular ion.

The coulomb repulsion is mentioned, but what's the attraction?
