Abstract
We present the results of x-ray and ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy of NpPd3 and PuPd3. The spectra indicate that for both compounds, the 5f electrons are well localized on the actinide sites. Comparison with bulk measurements indicates that for NpPd3 the electrons have a valence of Np3+ and thus a ground state 5f(4) with a Hund's rules I-5(4) configuration. Similarly for PuPd3, we find a Pu3+ valence, 5f(5) ground state and a Hund's rules H-6(5/2) configuration.
