Spin dependent momentum density and Fermi surface of ferromagnetic Ni obtained by positron annihilation experiments
The cover picture of this issue, taken from , shows a cross section of the Fermi surface in the basal plane of nickel. The measurements were carried out using 2D angular correlation of annihilation radiation (ACAR) experiments. The intersecting plane is normal to the c-axis, passing through the Γ and X points. The light regions correspond to a high electron momentum density. The Fermi surface is presented as two hole surfaces around the Γ point and two electron surfaces around the X point.
