We have studied resonant V Lα-fluorescence spectra of vanadium oxides with V in several different oxidation states. The spectra are dominated by the O 2p-contribution centered at about 6 eV below the top of the valence band (VB-top). The V 3d-contribution, found close to the VB-top, increases with decreasing valency of the vanadium atoms. Resonant inelastic (Raman) x-ray scattering is fairly weak in these compounds and overlaps with the ordinary fluorescence spectrum. Large spectral changes of V Lα-fluorescence in the metal-insulator transition of V2O3 have been observed.
