The electronic-energy-band structure of palladium has been calculated by means of the relativistic augmented-plane-wave method covering energies up to 30 eV above the Fermi level. The optical interband transitions producing structure in the dielectric function up to photon energies of 25 eV have been identified. Also the photoemission spectra for polycrystalline samples can be interpreted in terms of the present band model, and the regions in k→ space contributing to various elements of structure have been traced out.
