Calculate non-LTE spectra of carbon-monoxide

Compute a CO spectrum with the temperature of the vibrational mode different from the temperature of the rotational mode.

This example uses the calc_spectrum() function, the [HITRAN-2016] line database to derive the line positions and intensities, and the default RADIS spectroscopic constants to compute nonequilibrium energies and populations, but it can be extended to other line databases and other sets of spectroscopic constants.
