We have studied the temperature-dependent changes in the near E-F electronic structure of the electron-doped, phase separated colossal magnetoresistance (CMR) compound, Ca0.86Pr0.14MnO3 using photoemission and x-ray absorption studies. At low temperatures, this compound shows a high e(g) electron density near the E-F though the compound is insulating. Photoemission measurements further showed a temperature dependence of the e(g) electron occupation and localization while the complementary results of XAS showed corresponding changes in the number of unoccupied states. Our results indicate a transfer of charges from the t(2g) states to the e(g) band, probably due to a decrease in the crystal field splitting in the ferromagnetic metallic (FMM) phase following the structural changes of the MnO6 octahedra at low temperatures. We have interpreted our results from a FMM-antiferromagnetic insulating (AFMI) phase separation scenario.
