Neutrons have been used in the past to measure Compton profiles of atomic motion. Recently it was found that similar information can be obtained using electron scattering experiments. In particular formvar and polyethylene were studied using both techniques, thus considerably extending the first results reported recently [C.A. Chatzidimitriou-Dreismann et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 91 (2003) 57403]. In this paper we review the underlying theoretical framework and compare the experimental realization...[Show more]
