Two-Temperature Raymond Model

The model is a two-temperature Raymond thermal spectrum, low temperature range is 0.55 to 0.65 keV, high temperature range is 1 to 2 keV, element abundance table is cosmic, abundance of heavy elements (atomic number >2) is 50% of the value in the table. Note that 0.7 = log(5.0), specifies that the second component normalization will be 5 times the normalization of the first component. A multiple component fit requires that this normalization (or a range of normalizations) be specified for the 2nd, 3rd, etc. components. Type help models_spectral for a list of possible choices.
