Many physical properties of metals and alloys are determined by the Fend surface of their conduction electrons. The electron positron annihilation reaction is used to determine Fermi surfaces by means of angular correlation measurements of the annihilation radiation. Basic theories are included as well as details of some of the apparatus. Some results are shown. Problems and solutions concerning the experimental method are discussed.
