There is no pre-made short-cut symbol for that. Whether such a symbol can
be generated at all depends on the terminal driver you're using.
Enhanced-mode terminals (originally only PostScript; now others, too) and
TeX can do it by superposition of an 'o' above an 'A'. TeX probably has
a special math-mode symbol for it as an alternative.
[That's setting aside the fact that Angstrom is an obsolote unit, and has
been for a couple of decades, so you probably shouldn't be using it any

That too depends on the terminal driver being used. As of version 4.0,
most major drivers to support rotated text, and will thus output the
ylabel in vertical orientation.
