The electronic structure of the MAX-phase Ti pectroscopy. This nanolaminated carbide compound represents a class of layered materials with a combination of properties from both metals and ceramics. The bulk-sensitive soft x-ray emission technique is shown to be particularly useful for detecting detailed electronic structure information about internal monolayers and interfaces. The Ti-Al bonding is manifested by a pronounced peak in the Ti present in the binary TiC system. The spectral shape of Al in comparison to metallic Al. By replacing the constituting elements, a change of the electron population can be achieved causing a change of covalent bonding between the laminated layers, which enables control of the macroscopic properties of the material.
