How can I get an upright mu in math with latex interpreter?

27 views (last 30 days)
I want to display where mu is upright and not italic. Matlab renders the mu always in italic but I need it upright as my university requires it this way. Is there any way to do this?

If it does not need to be latex interpreter then possibly using 'i̅/μA' with interpreter tex or none would work ? That is
i U+0305 / U+03BC A

Hi Philipp Rehlaender,
It seems, there is no straight-forward way to do that in matlab figures. Nonetheless, there are work-arounds that help to create a look-like:
Despite that you can create your text freely using unicode. Helpful is the wikipedia list of Unicode blocks. Signs above characters are known as Combining Diacritical Marks.
Writing your requested line in standard text font as axes label:
textbar = sprintf('\x0304'); % is not the bar but looks better, for correct "bar" use \x0305
textmu = sprintf('\x03BC');
fh = figure;
ah = axes(fh);
ah.XLabel.String = sprintf('%s/%s%s',append('i',textbar),textmu,'A');
Edit: That is, what Walter suggested in short.
Kind regards,

Note: Using unicode will unfortunately not work for Interpreter Latex .
