%11x1 cell
I run the below code to extract only numeric parts of rows;
omega= regexp(omega,'[+-]?\d+\.?\d*', 'match');
But it also remove "e". How can I modify above code to get e as a numeric part?

'[+-]?\d+\.?\d*([eE][+-]?\d+)?'
PS: If each string contains just one number then you should consider using the 'once' option as well, as this simplifies the outputs:
regexp(... 'match','once');
