We have measured the photoemission spectra of Nd1-xSmxNiO3, where the metal-insulator transition and the Néel ordering occur at the same temperature for x≲0.4 and the metal-insulator transition temperature (TMI) is higher than the Néel temperature for x≳0.4. For x≤0.4, the spectral intensity at the Fermi level is high in the metallic phase above TMI and gradually decreases with cooling in the insulating phase below TMI while for x>0.4 it shows a pseudogaplike behavior above TMI and further diminishes below TMI. The results clearly establish that there is a change in the nature of the electronic correlations in the middle (x∼0.4) of the metallic phase of the RNiO3 system.
