We have studied the 2x1 reconstructed surface of the 3C-SiC polytype by means of photoemission spectroscopy. The reconstruction was characterized through Si2p and C1s core level and angle-integrated valence band spectroscopy, and confirmed by the observation of a two-domain 2x1 LEED pattern. The electronic properties of this surface were investigated by collecting valence band spectra at photon energies near the Si2p and C1s absorption edges. The results show a strong dependence of the photoemission intensity on the excitation energy with characteristic resonances for certain valence band features. With a detailed study of the resonances we are able to assign the electronic origin of the resonating states and the nature of the electronic transition near the absorption edges.
