X-rays originate form electronic transitions from valence bands (VB, bonding electron states) to inner-shell electron levels inform us energy states of bonding electrons. We have developed the SXES spectrometers attaching to TEM, EPMA, and SEM. A spectrometer has an energy range of 50-4000 eV by using four varied-line-spacing gratings. Applications of TEM-SXES instrument to C$$_{60}$$ have revealed characteristic energy distribution of bonding electrons. Carbon K-emission spectra of C $$_{60}$$ crystals showed that both the peak structures in $$pi$$- and $$sigma$$-bands and the characteristic dip structure between the $$pi$$- and $$sigma$$-bonding states in monomer-C$$_{60}$$ disappear in the most polymerized-C$$_{60}$$ crystals. Bulk specimens were examined by applying SXES to a SEM. Al L-emission spectra of intermetallic compounds of Al$$_{2}$$Au, AlCo, and aluminum showed different intensity distributions due to different band structures originating from different crystal structures.
