Everyone's reporting off the same press release.
This version at least omits the stock photo of a
light saber. Lukin's group's earlier papers are
at <http://lukin.physics.harvard.edu/>; Vladin's
group's are at <www.rle.mit.edu/eap>.
I don't think I'm related to Lukin. It's not
inconceivable; I'm just starting to explore what
became of the Lubkins who stayed in Russia. (Yes,
he's missing the B, but I have relatives who dropped the K.)
