Spectral energy distributions (SEDs) show the amount of energy emitted by an object as a function of wavelength. SEDs are not the same thing as blackbodies! But stars can be approximated by blackbodies, so blackbodies come up a lot in the context of SEDs.

Most coherent, developed, tested materials

Somewhat less coherent (or less standalone) materials
