Electron correlation effects in NaV2O5 were analyzed by resonant inelastic x-ray scattering spectroscopy (RIXS). The d-d transitions between V d-bands were probed using the technique. A sharp energy loss feature was observed at -1.56 eV, in agreement with model calculations. The calculations attributed the loss feature to excitations between the lower and upper Hubbard bands and permitted an accurate determination of the Hubbard interaction term.
