Scientific notation formatting (in graphs and fields)

Hi Libreoffice community, impressive work and great product.

I regularly use libreoffice for my scientific work. I produce figures in calc and reports in writer, with a lot of numbers as "fields". The Scientific number format in libreoffice (1.23E+002) is ok for some kinds of work, but some publications require that the numbers be formatted differently: 1.23x10².

Any idea how to create a number format like that?

I know that in normal text I can go around and edit manually, but I cannot do this for axes in figures or fields in writer.

The 0.00"x10"0 number definition gets me half way, but I do not know how to indicate that the numbers after "x10" should be superscript.
