Our work has received attention from several media sources over the past few years.  Please see below for some of these.

    A. Lanzara et al Nature 2001       G. H. Gweon et al. Nature 2004

These were our proposals for two Nature covers, in both cases not accepted by the journal :0(


Our work on isotope effects in cuprates, Nature 2004, was chosen as the Science Highlight of the work at the Advanced Light Source (2004) for the Science and Technology Panel in Washington.


This is some of the media coverage of our work on the isotope effect, Nature 2004,and electron-phonon coupling, Nature 2001.
