Electronic Band Structure of Magnesium and Magnesium Oxide: Experiment and Theory
Electron momentum spectroscopy (EMS) has been used to measure the valence band electronic structure of thin magnesium and magnesium oxide films. The band structures have also been calculated within the linear muffin-tin orbital (LMTO) approximation. The free-electron-like parabola characteristic of metallic solids was observed for magnesium with a bandwidth of approximately 6eV, in agreement with previous measurements. The inclusion of energy broadening due to finite hole-lifetime effects and a...[Show more]
