# Write lowercase in Section (IEEEtran class)

I want to write lower case in a section, I've tried using \MakeLowercase but its not working. Here is what I tried:

\section{Experiment I: T\MakeLowercase{he effect of changing the distance}}


I'm using the IEEEtran document class.

-

IEEEtran sets up the \section titles in the normal (or standard LaTeX2e) way using \@startsection. The font choice for sections are \normalfont\normalsize\centering\scshape:

\def\section{%
\@startsection{section}% type
{1}% level
{\z@}% indent
{1.5ex plus 1.5ex minus 0.5ex}% top separation before heading
{\normalfont\normalsize\centering\scshape}}% font


\scshape here is the problem for you. So all you need to do is insert \normalfont at the appropriate place:

\documentclass{IEEEtran}% http://ctan.org/pkg/IEEEtran
\begin{document}
\section{Experiment I: \normalfont The effect of changing the distance}
\end{document}


Note that they choose their definitions for a purpose. So, changing it might not be a good idea.
