In this news article on Chemistry World, the authors claim that “This is the first visual evidence of storage and retrieval of light for a long and controllable duration – in all other reports, storage time of photons is restricted to a few nanoseconds” I hope this claim won’t be repeated in the final published article, because it is totally inaccurate. See for example with controlled storage times of seconds.

It is also a bit strange that the only reference to this work is “Current Science 2007, 98, 1071″, the online version of which was last updated in early 2007 to volume 92. Where can I read more???

I would have thought Chemistry World could do better than this.
