Abstract

Self-consistent, relativistic band structure calculations on samarium sulphide are described. Energy bands were calculated as a function of lattice constant. An f-d valence transition was observed. The importance of using a fully relativistic formalism is discussed. The limitations of using the local density approximation for this type of material are also described.
