If I use semilogy to plot some data such that the plot appears as a straight line, how can I extract the exponent of this line? Can I use polyfit to get this or is there a different way?

i think you should use lsqcurvefit (requires Optimization Toolbox) or fit (requires Curve Fitting Toolbox) - depending on the toolboxes you have access to. I would expect an exponential function if there is a straight line in the semilogy plot. Due to this polyfit is not the correct choice. I recommend to work through this examples:
In case of lsqcurvefit the resulting elements of solutiuon x contain the needed exponent. In case of fit you get the values with the coeffvalues function.Therefore see also Fit Postprocessing.
Best regards

No worries, I sorted it - I had another variable stored as fit from a different part of the code! Thanks for your help!
