We have studied the photoemission from the (110) faces of two disordered Ni-Fe alloys containing 25% and 50% Fe over the photon energy range 20 – 45 eV with the aim of investigating their electronic structure. We observe a number of features that disperse with photon energy and we indicate their possible origin with reference to the one-electron Bloch spectral densities calculated using the SCF-KKRCPA.
