The epitaxial silicon oxynitride (SiON) layer grown on a 6H-SiC(0001) surface is studied with core level photoemission spectroscopy. Si 2p spectra show three spectral components other than the bulk one. Chemical shifts and emission angle dependence of these components are well explained within a framework of a determined structure model of the SiON layer.
