Annihilation of Positrons and the Electron Spectrum of Metals

  • P. U. Arifov


It is well known [1] that in metals positrons are able to become fully thermalized before being annihilated. This means that the momentum spectrum of the electron-positron pairs restored from the angular correlation function of the annihilation gamma quanta in fact constitutes the electron-momentum spectrum, to a certain extent deformed by the presence of the positron which initiates the annihilation process in the metal.
