I'm working on writing a paper for my grad research project and my PI wants me to model the plots after another paper that our lab published in the past, but I'm having a hard time figuring out how they got such nice looking error bars in their paper.

Here's a link to the pdf for that paper: http://arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/1308/1308.3039.pdf

The plot I'm referring to with the nice error bars is Figure 4 on page 15. The error bars are shown as a thick transparent line behind each curve. I was trying to see if excel has any way of doing something like that, which would be most convenient because I already have all of my data in an excel file, and it's a crapload of data. I get the feeling though, that they may have done it in Matlab, but if they did I would have no idea how to do that. I'm not much of a Matlab wiz to be honest.

If anybody has any ideas that would be really helpful! Thanks
