The spectral momentum densities of vanadium metal and V2O 3 are measured by electron momentum spectroscopy. Results are compared with band structure calculations based on density functional theory (DFT). Qualitatively, the agreement between theory and experiment is good. The calculated total band width of vanadium metal (6.5 eV) is in excellent agreement with the observed one (6.5 ± 0.25 eV). The splitting between the outer and inner valence bands in V2O3 is 2 eV larger in the experiment than...[Show more]
