I see that you are chossing to use your spectrometers as transmission spectroscopes but have you tried setting materials on fire and analyzing the emission spectras i have a rudimentary spectroscope made from paper, cd and smart phone with ir filter still inside and can still detect the difference spectra between burning butane and wood. What are the limitations?

There are a number of emission spectra used with the spectrometer. As an example, the instrument is calibrated with the emission spectrum from a compact fluorescent bulb (CFL).

Having said that, could you attach the spectra? They would be interesting to examine. What parts of the spectrum showed the difference between the wood and butane?
