Abstract

Bulk crystals of electron-doped cuprates with a T′-type structure require both Ce substitutions and reduction annealing for the emergence of superconductivity while reduction annealing alone can induce superconductivity in thin films of T′-type cuprates. In order to reveal the low-energy electronic states which are responsible for the superconductivity, we have conducted angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy measurements on thin films of the superconducting Ce-free T′-type cuprate Pr2CuO4. The results indicate that the overall band structure and the Fermi surface area of the superconducting Pr2CuO4 are similar to those of superconducting Ce-doped bulk single crystals, highlighting the importance of the actual electron concentration rather than the Ce concentration when discussing the physical properties of T′-type cuprates.
