This website was initially created as a part of Vilnius University Software Engineering bachelor's degree thesis and Lithuanian Science Council's students' research project SMT-073/SMT11R-133. The website was further extended as a part of the Informatics master's degree thesis. The works' advisor is prof. dr. Rimantas Vaicekauskas. Primary spectra were measured by Vilnius University Institute of Applied Research. The simulation takes place on a cloud server provided by the Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics.
