squared values in SIunitx for resolutions

Postby fifo » Fri May 29, 2020 2:12 pm

Dear all,

spent half the day to find a solution for this, but since now I didn't. In my thesis I write a lot about image and volume resolutions. Those resolutions are all isometric, so I'd like to shorten the notation to a squared or cubed value. Unfortunately SIunitx does not allow the modifiers \squared or \cubed in the value part of \SI. I attached this MWE, where I implemented my desired visualization manually in math mode:

Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. \documentclass{scrbook}
  2.  
  3. \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
  4. \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
  5.  
  6. \usepackage{siunitx}
  7. \DeclareSIUnit\pixel{px}
  8.  
  9.  
  10. \begin{document}
  11.  
  12. This is about my new favourite image resolution of \SI{100x100}{\pixel}.
  13. I would like to write it in a shorter notation, because of its isometric nature:
  14. $100^2\,\text{px}$. How do I implement that with SIunitx?
  15.  
  16. \end{document}


Does anybody know a way to implement this with SIunitx directly?

Thanks in advance :)
