We have performed Compton scattering measurements on as-grown and reduced single crystals of the electron-doped TA-cuprate Pr1.3-xLa0.7CexCuO4 (x = 0.10) to investigate the effect of reduction annealing on the electronic state. The obtained results have revealed that the numbers of electrons in the O2p orbital in the Zhang–Rice singlet band, the Cu3dx2-y2 orbital, and the Cu3d3z2-r2 orbital are increased by reduction annealing. The increase in the number of Cu3d3z2-r2 electrons suggests the existence of Cu3d3z2-r2 holes in the as-grown single crystal. This is spectroscopic evidence of local hole doping into the Cu3d3z2-r2 orbital around the excess oxygen, as suggested by transport measurements.
