Name the Scientist who discovered analysis of spectral line can be possible based on, if Iron is present in hot atmosphere of star ?

I don't know if there was one for Fe in particular.


Fraunhofer described the absorption lines in the solar spectrum. Kirchhoff and Bunsen showed they were the same as the emission lines characteristic of elements.
