[R] asterisk in subscript

i am trying to label a plot axis with the equivalent of the latex $n_*$.
i initially tried


but this made the * absolutely tiny and centred about midway wrt the n.


made the * about the right size but now it looks more like a superscript
than a subscript.

does anyone have an idea of how to get the * to the "right" subscript
position (ie. somewhere near the baseline of the n)? thanks!

best regards,
