Electronic structures of the isostructural rare-earth intermetallic compounds TmGa3, ErGa3 and Celn3 have recently been studied by measurements of two-dimensional angular correlations of annihilation radiation (2D ACAR) spectra. On the example of these systems, we show which kind of information can be exploited from such spectra, i.e. from line projections of the electron-positron momentum density Ò(p). By applying various tomographic techniques, we check how these algorithms can affect reconstructed 3D momentum densities and Fermi surfaces (PS). We confirm that for all these systems in the paramagnetic phase the f-electrons are fully localized and their FSs are similar. TmGa3 and ErGa3 exhibit the FS nesting feature, in agreement with their magnetic structure, which is not the case for CeIn3.

Abstract

Electronic structures of the isostructural rare-earth intermetallic compounds TmGa3, ErGa3 and Celn3 have recently been studied by measurements of two-dimensional angular correlations of annihilation radiation (2D ACAR) spectra. On the example of these systems, we show which kind of information can be exploited from such spectra, i.e. from line projections of the electron-positron momentum density Ò(p). By applying various tomographic techniques, we check how these algorithms can affect reconstructed 3D momentum densities and Fermi surfaces (PS). We confirm that for all these systems in the paramagnetic phase the f-electrons are fully localized and their FSs are similar. TmGa3 and ErGa3 exhibit the FS nesting feature, in agreement with their magnetic structure, which is not the case for CeIn3.
