Please click the icons in the partial periodic table above to see the Fermi surfaces of individual elements. To get help on the interactive VRML controls, click here.


  • Please also visit the Stereo3D and Java3D Fermi surface page.
  • To see the poster we use in APS March meeting to explain the method we used, download the file chart.pdf (612KB). Click here to see pictures of actual use of stereographics glasses to view the Fermi Surface.
  • The Periodic Table of the Fermi Surfaces of Elemental Solids is available in HTML format (610kB) and PDF format (for printing, 2.7MB, 3'x4' poster or shink to fit page.).
  • If you want to see a lot of the Fermi surfaces, please read Site download instructions, they're much faseter/more convenient.

    External Links:
  • DFT Fermi surface page by C. Lehmann, S. Sinning, P. Zahn, H. Wonn, I. Mertig, Dresden. Their data is computed using density functional theory, with Fermi velocity and spdf-character projection. If transport properties are your concern, spdf-cahracters would likely be useful.
