    Every element has its own unique electron configuration. Therefore when you excite an atom the outer most electrons will jump to a higher lever and will then fall back to ground state. Since each atom is different the fall is never the same for any 2 atoms. Hence, different spectra hope tht helps :p

    When matter (atoms) is heated up, the outer most electrons of that atom get excited. Once these electrons wear out of the energy, they release it in the form of light; this light is presented in the form of colorful wavelengths. Since every atom has a different number of electrons, they act differently and release different wavelengths of light. The light is presented in the form of colors but since each atom releases different wavelengths, no two atoms are able to emit the same wavelengths and thus a unique emission spectrum is viewed HOLLAH!! Y(^.^Y)
