I have some work on Question Answering that extensively uses Lucene for TREC
this year, but the paper is only half written (due november) so I'm afraid I
can't release it at the moment. Some other papers I can point out are:

Phrasal Queries with LingPipe and Lucene: Ad Hoc Genomics Text Retrieval,
by B. Carpenter, Alias-i, Inc.

Boris Katz and his team at MIT uses Lucene for a lot of their QA work, here's a
paper that compares Lucene with PRISE (The IR engine NIST uses for TREC).
Quantitative Evaluation of Passage Retrieval Algorithms for Question Answering

A comparison of off-the-shelf IR engines for question answering
by Jorg Tiedemann

I hope this helps.
