Subject: spectra


I show spectra of gas tubes in my high school astronomy class. We have
argon, helium, hydrogen, krypton, mercury vapor, neon, and water vapor. I
wish to purchase a few more (Flinn, p. 286), but I don't know the spectra
of these gases:

bromine vapor
carbon dioxide
chlorine gas
iodine vapor
nitrogen gas
oxygen gas

Has anyone ever seen these spectra? How do they appear? I'm looking for
ones with nice colors, clear lines, etc. Thanks!
