Energy bandstructure of zinc and cadmium

The energy bandstructure of the hexagonal close packed divalent metals Zn and Cd is calculated using the Schlosser and Marcus version (1963) of the APW method in conjunction with the quantum defect method. From the resulting energy band data, the densities of states and the Fermi surfaces of both these metals have been calculated and found to compare favourably with experimental data. In addition, an attempt has been made to predict the optical properties of the metals from these bandstructure calculations.
