The electronic structure of liquid tungsten has been studied by time-resolved photo electron spectroscopy on laser pulse molten surface layers. The valence band spectra reveal distinct changes of the electronic structure across the solid-liquid phase transition which are interpreted by marked changes of the short-range order on melting which change qualitatively the valence electron density of states.
