A brief history of the development of spectrum analysis, beginning with the pioneering discoveries of Bunsen and Kirchoff in 1860, was the subject of Part 6 of this series (see November issue, p. 24). Although no new chemistry resulted from their activities, two men in Colonial Australia showed a keen interest in spectrum analysis in the 1860s. This is their story.
