# Lesser and greater symbols in the axeslabels

I need a plot with $\Gamma^<$ as axeslabel using:

AxesLabel -> { $\Gamma^<$}

But I get an error.

AxesLabel -> { $\Gamma^{a<b}$} works though.

I think I've to tell mathematica that $\Gamma^<$ is not a mathematical expression or something in that direction.

Is there some solution for this problem? Thanks

Maybe: AxesLabel -> {Superscript["\[CapitalGamma]", "<"]} – VLC Oct 9 '12 at 13:46
@VLC Thank you! That was the solution! Could you make an answer from this comment, then I could rate it. – alisia123 Oct 9 '12 at 13:56

AxesLabel -> {Superscript["\[CapitalGamma]", "<"]}.
To complement VLC's answer know that you do not need to explicitly enter Superscript. It is sufficient to place the entire label expression into a String.
