As David suggests, you can give embedded commands a try.  However, you
are probably looking for a TeX-like interface for graphics symbols and
formatting.  If that's true they you are probably looking for
TeXtoIDL, found at the following URL:


Your plot command the becomes:

plot, y, xtitle=textoidl('\omega_t'),ytitle=textoidl('r^2/\alpha')
