This is pgf-spectra, version 1.0 (15/04/2016).

This package provides the \pgfspectra[<options>] command which draws continuous and emission or absorption spectra for 99 elements and their ions.
It was developed mainly for the writing of my own documentation and exams sheets supporting directly PDF output format.
The drawing is made with the TikZ package and is based in the pst-spectra extension for PSTricks.

** Requirements
TikZ and ifthen packages.

** Installation
Unpack everything in a directory in the TeX search path and refresh the TeX database.

** Usage
Just place \usepackage{pgf-spectra} in the preamble.

pgf-spectra – Draw continuous or discrete spectra using PGF/TikZ

The purpose of this package is to draw the spectra of elements in a simple way.

It is based on the package pst-spectra, supporting the same options, but also adding some new options. It relies on PGF/TikZ for drawing the desired spectrum, continuous or discrete.

As in pst-spectra, there are data available for the spectra of 99 elements and their ions (from the NASA database). It also allows the user to draw spectra using their own data.
