Secondary axes for wavelength data in nanometres. With suitable scaling and name (axis label) for frequency, wave number, photon energy and wavelength.

Usage

sec_axis_w_number(unit.exponent = -6, label.text = axis_labels()[["w.number"]])

sec_axis_w_frequency(unit.exponent = 12, label.text = axis_labels()[["freq"]])

sec_axis_energy_eV(unit.exponent = 0, label.text = axis_labels()[["energy"]])

sec_axis_energy_J(unit.exponent = -18, label.text = axis_labels()[["energy"]])

sec_axis_wl(unit.exponent = -9, label.text = axis_labels()[["w.length"]])

Arguments

unit.exponent

integer The exponent on base 10 of the scale multiplier used for the axis labels, e.g., 3 for \(10^3\) or \(k\).

label.text

character Textual portion of the labels.

Details

These secondary axis functions can be used only when the x aesthetic is mapped to a numerical variable containing wavelength values expressed in nanometres. They can be used to add a secondary x axis to plots created using ggplot() or autoplot().

the default text used for quantity names are most easily changed by resetting all the defaults once as explained in axis_labels_uk, even if it is possible to override them also in each call.

Examples


ggplot(sun.spct) +
  geom_line() +
  scale_x_wl_continuous(sec.axis = sec_axis_w_number())


# Secondary axes can be added to plots built with autoplot() methods
autoplot(sun.spct) +
  scale_x_wl_continuous(sec.axis = sec_axis_w_number())
#> Scale for x is already present.
#> Adding another scale for x, which will replace the existing scale.


# Using 'ggplot2' scale
ggplot(sun.spct) +
  geom_line() +
  scale_x_continuous(name = w_length_label(),
                     sec.axis = sec_axis_w_number())


# change scale multipliers, SI defined
ggplot(sun.spct) +
  geom_line() +
  scale_x_wl_continuous(-6, sec.axis = sec_axis_w_number(-3))


# change scale multipliers, not SI defined (best avoided)
ggplot(sun.spct) +
  geom_line() +
  scale_x_wl_continuous(-8, sec.axis = sec_axis_w_number(-4))


# Change quantity name to Spanish
ggplot(sun.spct) +

  scale_x_wl_continuous(label.text = "Longitud de onda,",
                        sec.axis = sec_axis_w_frequency(label.text = "Frecuencia,"))


# Frequency in secondary axis
ggplot(sun.spct) +

# Energy (per photon) in atto joules
ggplot(sun.spct) +

# Energy (per photon) in electron volts
ggplot(sun.spct) +
  geom_line() +
  scale_x_wl_continuous(sec.axis = sec_axis_energy_eV())


# Secondary axis with wavelength using a different scale factor
ggplot(sun.spct) +

# Secondary axes can be added to plots built with autoplot() methods

#> Scale for x is already present.
#> Adding another scale for x, which will replace the existing scale.
