Directional Compton profiles have been measured along the , , ,  and  crystallographic axes in GaAs using 412 keV and 59.54 keV-gamma-radiation from Au-198 and Am-241 radioisotope sources, respectively. The results have been compared with the prediction of a pseudopotential calculation both in momentum space and in position space. The pseudopotential approach predicts the anisotropy of the valence electron distribution and is consistent with an increase in the ionic bond character compared with Ge. On the other hand, the total electron distributions are not well described due to the omission of core orthogonalisation terms.
