Is there a way to get all authors of a paper on a single line with affiliations right below them? When I combine authors and affiliations together in the code below, the formatting does not look good (i.e., bunched up). This makes me suspect that I should be using an external LaTeX package, but I'm not sure if this is the case. Perhaps I must use the authblk package in the code below? I really have no preference for what package to use as long as it looks good:

\documentclass[twocolumn, prl]{revtex4}

\makeindex

%--------------------------------------------------------
\begin{document}

\title{My title}

\author{Name1}
\email{[email protected]}
\affiliation{University name\\ Department name\\ Address}

\author{Name2}
\email{[email protected]}
\affiliation{University name3\\ Department name\\ Address}

\author{Name3}
\email{[email protected]}
\affiliation{University name2\\ Department name\\ Address}


\begin{abstract}
  The abstract starts here.  Filling space now: etc etc etc...
\end{abstract}


\maketitle

\section{Introduction}

My introduction starts here...

\end{document}

    Why don't you just leave this up to the journal to figure out? Also, why not use revtex4-1?

    @Werner What can I say?... I love making LaTeX typesetting myself and wouldn't just give it to them that easy! ;) In reality though, I need a working pre-submission pdf draft to show my boss. revtex4-1 changes my bibliographic and email address configurations.

Hat-tip to username mvkorpel, who suggested that I try class option superscript address. Code below, with \\ removed:

\documentclass[twocolumn, prl, superscriptaddress]{revtex4}

\makeindex

%--------------------------------------------------------
\begin{document}

\title{My title}

\author{Name1}
\email{[email protected]}
\affiliation{University name, Department name, Address}

\author{Name2}
\email{[email protected]}
\affiliation{University name3, Department name, Address}

\author{Name3}
\email{[email protected]}
\affiliation{University name2, Department name, Address}


\begin{abstract}
  The abstract starts here.  Filling space now: etc etc etc...
\end{abstract}


\maketitle

\section{Introduction}

My introduction starts here...

\end{document}
