[Matplotlib-users] Creating side by side graphs with different scales

Hi all,

Attached is a figure showing what I hope to achieve. I have two domains 
that are connected but which have dramatically different scaling on 
either side of their interface. I would like the x axis to be in 
micrometers on one side of the interface and nanometers on the other 
side. I also want to be able to use a different y-axis on both sides 
(e.g. range 0 - 1e19 on one side and and range 0 - 1e23 on the other 
side). Yet I would like to juxtapose the two plots together as shown in 
the attached figure. Is this possible with matplotlib? If so, what's the 
best way to go about doing this?
