Direct transition energies of Mg2Si were obtained by photoreflectance (PR) spectra of a highly-oriented Mg2Si(111)//Si(111) film. In the PR spectra at 9 K, direct transition energies of E1 = 2.38 eV, E2 = 2.58 eV, E3 = 2.69 eV, and E4 = 2.82 eV were observed. In the temperature dependence of PR spectra, E1 and E2 shifted to lower energy at high temperatures, but there was no temperature dependence of transition energies in E3 and E4. These results showed that the temperature dependences of band structure in Mg2Si differ at direct transition points.
