Splitting of the conduction bands of GaAs for k along (110).

Christensen N.E., Cardona M.

The splitting of the spin degeneracy of the lowest conduction band of GaAs for k along (110) is calculated by k.p perturbation theory as well as by means of the self-consistent LMTO method. The magnitude and the sign of the calculated splitting agree with recent measurements of the spin precession in spin-polarized photoemission from GaAs (110) surfaces.
