Valence-band and conduction-band structures of NiAs-type MnTe have been investigated by means of ultraviolet photoemission and inverse-photoemission spectroscopy. We estimate the Mn 3d spin-exchange splitting energy to be 6.6 ± 0.2 eV. The Mn 3d-derived spectra of MnTe have been calculated in terms of a configuration interaction theory.
