The pseudopotential method is used to obtain the band structure and electronic density of states for both cubic and rhombohedral GeTe. We find that the minimum energy gap occurs along the line LK. Our calculations also show that the rhombohedral distortion lowers the electronic energy. In addition the reflectance spectra are obtained for the cubic GeTe and compared with experimental data.
