  1. atomic spectrum

    An atomic spectrum is a series of patterns or lines of light that correspond to specific frequencies, usually visible through a spectroscope, created as a result of an excited atom transitioning from a high energy state to a lower one, which causes energy to be released in the form of light. This spectrum is unique for each element, effectively serving as its "fingerprint," and can be used to identify the type of atoms present in a sample.
