Period Table of Spectra

Emission Spectra of the Elements

Our gorgeous Periodic Table of the Elements poster is a wonderful teaching aid and a great compliment to your current periodic table.

Your students will immediately understand that each element has its own spectral fingerprint.

Hang it in your office, lab, man-cave or women-cave.  We’re sure that with a bit of negotiation you’ll be able to convince your spouse, partner, roommate, parent or dog to let you hang it in your living or dining room…
