    • Abstract


      The Pattison-Williams method of using Fourier-transformed Compton profiles for obtaining Fermi momenta in simple metals, is extended to set up a scheme for inferringd orf band occupancies in transition metals, rare earths etc. CP measurements are reported for Ni,α-Mn andβ-Mn and then the new scheme is applied to obtain 3d occupancies in these systems. Some comments on the use of this method for other systems are also made.
