Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


The redistribution of valence electrons at a vacancy in aluminium is calculated in the Thomas-Fermi approximation. This result is then used in evaluating the annihilation characteristics of positrons trapped at vacancies. A good agreement with experiments is established.
