colour.colorimetry.sd_gaussian_fwhm(peak_wavelength: float, fwhm: float, shape: colour.colorimetry.spectrum.SpectralShape = SPECTRAL_SHAPE_DEFAULT, **kwargs: Any) colour.colorimetry.spectrum.SpectralDistribution[source]#

Return a gaussian spectral distribution of given spectral shape at given peak wavelength and full width at half maximum.

Parameters
  • peak_wavelength (float) – Wavelength the gaussian spectral distribution will peak at.

  • fwhm (float) – Full width at half maximum, i.e. width of the gaussian spectral distribution measured between those points on the y axis which are half the maximum amplitude.

  • shape (colour.colorimetry.spectrum.SpectralShape) – Spectral shape used to create the spectral distribution.

  • kwargs (Any) – {colour.SpectralDistribution}, See the documentation of the previously listed class.

Returns

Gaussian spectral distribution.

Return type

colour.SpectralDistribution
