    • Abstract


      In this paper we report the experimental Compton profile of polycrystalline molybdenum. The measurements have been made by scattering 59.54 keVγ-rays and are compared with the recent band structure calculation of Janiet al. [4]. These results have also been compared with our calculation based on the renormalized-free-atom model for different 4d-5s configurations. It is found that the present experimental data are relatively in good agreement with the band structure calculation.
