In my paper written in LATEX, I used a symbol $\mathcal{T}$ and I want to put it in the axis label of my plot. However I could not find such functionality in Mathematica. Is it possible?

You can specify any font available on you OS. – Silvia Dec 24 '13 at 10:19

You can find calligraphic script under the Palettes' Special Characters menu. E.g.

Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 6 Pi}, AxesLabel -> {\[ScriptCapitalT], None}]

Or, if you specifically want the LaTeX Mathcal font - apparently cmbsy10 - you can download and install it, and specify it in the Style option:-

Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 6 Pi}, AxesLabel -> {Style["T", FontFamily -> "cmbsy10"], None}]
