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.)
