Main Question or Discussion Point

I have failed to Google the answer because I don't even know what to call it. You know that little "E" used in Engineering notation that lacks serifs?

How do I make that "E"?

If it's not either of these: ##\epsilon,## ##\varepsilon##, then you might need to provide a link to something that uses the symbol you mean.

I think she means the number notation:

3.0E−9 or 3.0e−9

Yes, that's what I mean exactly. My textbook (as well as my calculator) notates it with a distinct little E that's thin, short and not italicized. Anyone know how to make it right off the bat? Now I shall scroll through Fresh's link...
