Directional Compton profile measurements of aluminium and chromium have been performed with 60 keV and 412 keV γ-radiation to assess the complementarity of the 241Am and 198Au spectrometer systems in common use by experimentalists. Revision of the data reduction procedure has yielded symmetrical Compton profiles within experimental error for the first time. The effects of exchange and correlation on theoretical Compton profiles calculated within the local density approximation have been evaluated via the Lam-Platzman correction and applied to existing transition metal results. Novel experiments using circularly polarised synchrotron radiation to detect the magnetic Compton profiles of iron and nickel have been performed successfully.
