Abstract

We have studied the chemical potential shift and changes in the electronic density of states near the Fermi level (E F) as functions of temperature and carrier concentration in Pr 1-x Ca x MnO 3 (PCMO) and Nd 1-x Sr x MnO 3 (NSMO) by measurements of photoemission spectra. Suppression of the chemical potential shift as a function of carrier concentration has been observed in PCMO and NSMO near and in the composition range where the CE-type antiferromagnetic charge-ordered (CO) phase appears at low temperatures. This result indicates that there is charge self-organization on a microscopic scale such as stripe formation in this composition range. In the ferromagnetic metallic phase of NSMO, we found a large temperature-dependent chemical potential shift at low temperatures and attributed this to double-exchange mechanism. Suppression of the temperature-dependent chemical potential shift near Curie temperature was observed, possibly associated with the formation of correlated polarons. In the valence band near the E F of PCMO, spectral weight was transferred with hole doping, leading to a finite intensity at E F even in the paramagnetic insulating phase above the CO phase for x ≳ 0.3, and as the temperature was lowered, a clear gap opening was observed in the CO phase.
