# Frame Tick Labelling in Power Form [duplicate]

Hopefully a simple one for you. I would like to edit the frame ticks on my plot such that they are in "power" form. As it stands I try:

FrameTicks -> {{{10^-9, 10^-8, 10^-7, 10^-6, 10^-5}, None}, {Automatic, None}}


This seems to compile with awful fraction formatting, is there a way to format it as 10^power and keep it that way?

• Ticks accept several ways of formatting. In your case I'd go for pairs of values of the form {position, label}. Wrap your labels in quotes, like so {10^-9, "10^-9"}. – LLlAMnYP May 10 '15 at 20:10
• This might be what you want. You could also look into the CustomTicks package which can be pretty useful. – Virgil May 10 '15 at 20:13
