There is an article on the subject in the August issue of Scientific
American called "Lightning Control with Lasers". pp.50 - 55. I am not sure
if it is the same people that you are looking for. The name it gives are:
Jean-Claude Diels, Ralph Bernstein, Karl E. Stahlkopf and Xin Miao Zhao.
There is no reference to scientific papers that I remember, only suggestions
for further reading on the subject.
I hope that this can help.
