Typos, Errors, and Notes


Science 292. Eq. 3 is missing a minus sign - it should be e-(ko km/br)*e(bF-1). Also, the equation in the legend to figure 2 should be p(E)=1/(1 + eE/kT). The paper was originally quite long, and we moved a lot of stuff to a web supplement.

PNAS 104. Plasmon rulers paper. The units of the timescales in Figure 3, panels e-h, are wrong - they should be s and not ms. Panels a-d are correct.

PNAS 104. Proteorhodopsin paper. Supporting Information equation 9 is incorrect. The right side of the expression should be inverted.
