Abstract

In the article by Ma et al. [Phys. Rev. A 94, 052709 (2016)]-ray spectra for positron annihilation on molecules were calculated in the independent-particle approximation with the positron wave function set to unity. Based on comparisons with experimental data they concluded that inner valence electrons play a dominant role in positron annihilation. These conclusions are incorrect and resulted from fallacious analysis that ignored the known effect of the positron wave function on the spectra.
