CTAN update: pgf-spectra
pgf-spectra, version 2.1.0 Major changes: - the continuous visible region is now drawn via TikZ shading improving a little bit the speed of the whole process. Minor fix: - the width of the emission/absortion lines are now correctly drawn. New commands: - \tempercolor (correlated color temperature, Kelvin to rgb color) - \pgfspectrashade (for usage with TikZ package) - \pgfspectraplotshade (for usage with PGFPLOTS package) - \pgfspectraplotmap (for usage with PGFPLOTS package) - \pgfspectrarainbow (draws a rainbow) New keys for \pgfspectra: - use visible shading - backVIS - axis unit - axis unit precision Keys for \pgfspectraplotshade: - shade end - shade opacity - shade opacity color Keys for \pgfspectrarainbow: - rainbow fade - rainbow start - rainbow knock out - rainbow background - rainbow transparency

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, but with some extra options. It relies on PGF/TikZ for drawing the desired spectrum, continuous or discrete.
There are data available for the spectra of 98 elements and their ions (from the NASA database and from NIST). It also allows the user to draw spectra using their own data.
