I'm not quite certain what your y axis label is to be, but you could use a
Row construction to format the label.

Plot[x, {x, 0, 1},
 AxesLabel -> {"Wavelength (\[Mu]m)", 
   Row[{"Solar Irradiance ", W/(m^2), " \[Mu]m"}]}]

I can't seem to get my axis labels formatted correctly in Mathematica 7.  I
would like to have a string expression followed by a fraction in
parentheses, but the string expression appears in the numerator, instead of
in front of the fraction.  Here is my expression for SetOptions:

SetOptions[ListLinePlot,AxesLabel -> {"Wavelength (\[Mu]m)", 
  Solar Irradiance \!\( 
     "W" \/ "\!\(\*SuperscriptBox[\"m\", \"2\"]\)\[Mu]m"\)}]

I have also tried the frontend graphics interface to enter fractions, with
the same result.

Best regards,
Jeff
