Computes coherent and spontaneous Rayleigh-Brillouin spectra using s6 (Tenti) or s7 (Pan) models

w0_func(z,N)
```function w = w0_func(z,N)
% Based on:
%   W = FADDEEVA(Z) is the Faddeeva function, aka the plasma dispersion
%   function, for each element of Z. The Faddeeva function is defined as:
%
%     w(z) = exp(-z^2) * erfc(-j*z)
%
%   where erfc(x) is the complex complementary error function.
%
%   W = FADDEEVA(Z,N) can be used to explicitly specify the number of terms
%   to truncate the expansion (see (13) in [1]). N = 16 is used as default.
%
%   Example:
%       x = linspace(-10,10,1001); [X,Y] = meshgrid(x,x);
%       figure;
%       subplot(121); imagesc(x,x,real(W)); axis xy square; caxis([-1 1]);
%       subplot(122); imagesc(x,x,imag(W)); axis xy square; caxis([-1 1]);
