I need to plot the potential energy curves, i.e. to do something similar to this:

enter image description here

I know, that I could use pgfplots to get the curves, but what I'm troubled about are the labels - I'd like to do both the curves' labels and the dissociation limits' labels (in the red rectangle) in a very same manner as here and I don't know, if it's possible easily in pgfplots.

Also, I was trying to find some package already offering this functionality, but I've found only endiagram which, while looking good, is meant more for teaching purposes, than for data-plotting.

So, would you, please, recommend me some easy way to do this, if possible?

    It certainly is possible to reproduce the graph. I would suggest that you provide us with everything except the labels and legend and we will do the rest. Up to now it is a "just do the the graphics" question which usually gets closed as "off-topic" when not someone with much time does everything for you. – Stefan Pinnow Jun 6 at 14:24
  • @StefanPinnow Ok, I'll supplement the plot asap. – Eenoku Jun 6 at 14:25

It should be possible to do that, by using the \node function of pgfplots, you can add a position where you want to have each of the labels.

I personally would use a legend that is outside the diagram for labeling the individual curves. But there are a dozend ways to do the legends, these can be found in chapter 4.9 of the pgfplots documentation.
