The Auger KVV and x-ray photoelectron valence-band spectra of atomically clean, well-ordered graphite are measured. After background subtraction is performed and a deconvolution technique is used to remove energy-dependent features from the Auger data, the transition density function is calculated for the graphite valence band. A comparison is made with other experimental work and with a density-of-states calculation. It is found that the transition density closely resembles the density of states if localized hole effects are considered. © 1977 The American Physical Society.
