GW calculations of electron momentum densities and Compton profiles — •Eddie Harris-Lee1, Alyn James1, John Kay Dewhurst2, and Stephen Dugdale11H. H. Wills Physics Laboratory, University of Bristol, Bristol, United Kingdom — 2Max-Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics, Halle, Germany

Compton scattering gives direct access to the single-particle momentum density, which contains information about the ground state wave functions of the many-body system. Theoretical calculations of electron momentum densities and Compton profiles, using Kohn-Sham density functional theory, don’t fully agree with experimental measurements [1]. This could be partly due to the approximate description of correlation and partly because the Kohn-Sham wave functions are chosen to reproduce the density in real space, not in momentum space [2]. There is therefore good motivation to try alternative first principles theories. GW methods are an obvious choice [3], since these employ quasiparticle wave functions and use a different, non-local, description of exchange and correlation [4]. A method for obtaining a set of wave functions and occupation numbers from the output of a GW calculation will be described. The resulting electron momentum densities will be compared to experimental measurements for various materials.
