We have conducted hard X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy investigations of the electronic structure changes and electron correlation phenomena which take place upon the photoinduced reversible phase transition between $$beta$$- and $$lambda$$-Ti$$_3$$O. From valence band spectra of $$beta$$- and $$lambda$$-Ti$$_3$$O$$_5$$, we have identified the bipolaron caused by the $$sigma$$-type bonding of $$d_{xy}$$ orbitals in $$beta$$-Ti$$_3$$O$$_5$$ and the $$pi$$ stacking between the $$d_{xy}$$ orbitals between different Ti sites in $$lambda$$-Ti$$_3$$O$$_5$$, previously predicted by $textit{ab initio}$ calculations. On the other hand, the Ti $$2p$$ and Ti $$1s$$ core level spectra exhibit nonlocal screening satellite features, which are typical spectroscopic signs of strong electron correlation in the coherent Ti $$t_{2g}$$ states. Correlation in the valence band also manifests to reduce the plasmon energy, which results in an enhancement of the valence electron mass by a factor of 2.7.
