In graphing I hope to output the following format for example $|a_{1020}|^2$.

I need to use this as my axes label in a plot and to type this expression in Mathematica. I am fully aware there is a guideline post. This question (with an answer below) serves as a specific case (some elements may quite commonly occur in graphing) for future reader. If not, please close this question but do not downvote it.

If kindly uplift the downvote as I am closed to getting banned due to this one question. If you find this question useful as a special case, please upvote it.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks @yohbs. I have add one more picture. The output of mathematica results in a spacing for long-digit number. How to overcome this problem? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Use quotes to force Mathematica to treat stuff as strings and not as numbers/variabels. TraditionalForm[Abs[Subscript["a", "102900"]]^2] $\endgroup$
