Create a Periodic Table of Spectral Lines

Every element possesses a unique set of atomic line transitions. Through the Wolfram Language, you can access information from the NIST Atomic Spectra Database on hundreds of thousands of lines for the entire table of elements.

Examine the visible lines for hydrogen.

Explore the available data on specific lines.

You can construct a periodic table of these spectra using a simple blueprint.

Check the blueprint's contents by creating a simple graphics expression.

Construct a list of entity classes corresponding to the visible atomic line transitions for all elements, excluding ions.

Extract the wavelengths corresponding to those lines.

Create a periodic table of spectra. Hover over the elements to see a larger plot.
