published by the Physics 2000
This series of webpages from Physics 2000 presents spectral lines, atomic energy levels, and transitions from one level to another.  A simulation shows how a photon is emitted when an electron drops to a lower energy level and absorbed when electron moves up to a higher level.  Sample emission spectra are included.
