    Abstract

    The electronic structure and the optical properties of the HoCoSi and ErNiSi compounds are studied. Spin-polarized band calculations are performed in the local electron density approximation corrected for the strong electron–electron interactions in the 4f shell of a rare-earth ion (LSDA + U method [11]). The optical constants are measured by ellipsometry in a wide wavelength range, and the frequency dependences of a number of spectral parameters are determined. The calculated densities of states are used to interpret the structural features of the interband optical conductivities of the intermetallic compounds.
