Hi everyone,
I am having the following graph where scientific notation appears on the top. How can I make the notation to appear next to each axis tick/value?
Thanks in advance.

x = linspace(1e-6, 2e-6, 21);
plot(x)
h = gca;
h.YTickLabel = string(x*1e6)+"\times10^{-6}";

All these are "manual" and not "auto":
x = linspace(1e-6, 2e-6, 21);
plot(x)
h = gca;
h.YTickLabel = string(x*1e6)+"\times10^{-6}";
h.YTickLabel{1} ="0"; % not the correct value; for demo only
