I would like to show a tilde in the superscript of a letter. For example


But it does not look good. Any suggestions?

Thanks and regards!


I assume you want something that looks like F~, and that you're just using the tilde as a "squiggle" to name something. If you're in math mode, F^{\sim} looks more like what you want.


The "~" rendering depends on the font, some have centre base, some are positioned much higher (more like "^" and less like "-") Play around with different fonts to get a wanted non-ugly "~".
