Hi,

but you don't mean the greek mu, you mean a micro and
that is

SetOptions[Plot, Frame -> True,
   FrameLabel -> "Wavelength (\[Micro]m)"];

Regards

The space disappears if you remove the ColorFunction gradient from the plot parameters.  Also, if you change \[Mu] to a standard character like m, the formatting looks perfectly acceptable.  To be honest, I don't really understand the reason for the [#] & following the ColorData tag, but the gradient doesn't seem to work properly without it.  Is my syntax correct?
