The dynamic structure factors S(q,ω) of diamond and LiF have been measured using inelastic x-ray scattering. The experimental data are compared to results of ab initio calculations, which take into account the interaction of the excited electron with the remaining hole. In diamond, the vicinity of the indirect band gap and its momentum dependence are studied. In LiF, a larger energy range, which covers the fundamental excition, the plasmon, and several interband transitions, is investigated. Calculations and measurements agree quite well and emphasize the need to properly include the interaction of the excited electron in the conduction band with the hole in the valence band.
