# colour.colorimetry.sd_gaussian_fwhm¶

colour.colorimetry.sd_gaussian_fwhm(peak_wavelength, fwhm, shape=SpectralShape(360, 780, 1))[source]

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

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

• fwhm (numeric) – 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 (SpectralShape, optional) – Spectral shape used to create the spectral distribution.

Returns

Gaussian spectral distribution.

Return type

SpectralDistribution
