    Description

    Electron momentum spectroscopy (EMS) determines directly the probability that an electron in matter has a certain binding energy-momentum combination. This probability distribution, the spectral function, is a very complete description of the electronic structure of the material. EMS reveals the effects of electron-electron correlation directly, and it able to determine the validity of theories that go beyond the independent electron approximation. We propose to further develop this powerful spectroscopy and test the validity of the various computational schemes available. The resulting understanding of the electronic structure will facilitate the design of new materials with desirable properties.
