The results of measurements of X-ray photoelectron (XPS), X-ray emission (XES) and X-ray absorption spectra and LSDA band structure calculations of Pr0.5Sr0.5MnO3 are presented. The excitation energy dependence of Mn L2,3 and O Kα X-ray emission spectra of Pr0.5Sr0.5MnO3 is measured using tunable synchrotron radiation. Comparing XPS and XES measurements and the LSDA band structure calculations, one concludes that the Mn 3d states are localized near the top of the valence band. Some differences in the Mn 3d-distribution in the upper part of the XPS valence band and Mn L3 XES are due to spin selection rules.
