We have studied the effect of Lu substitution on the Kondo insulator (Formula presented) by high-resolution photoemission. Comparison of the spectra of (Formula presented), (Formula presented), and (Formula presented) reveals that the density of states (DOS) of the B (Formula presented)-derived conduction band near the Fermi level is reduced in (Formula presented) over a rather wide (∼ 40 meV) energy region. Lu substitution (i) recovers the reduced B (Formula presented) DOS, (ii) shifts the Yb (Formula presented)-derived Kondo peak towards higher binding energy, and (iii) decreases the Yb valence. These results are consistently analyzed using the Anderson-impurity model, and imply interaction between the Yb (Formula presented) ions mediated by the Yb (Formula presented)-B (Formula presented) hybridization in (Formula presented).
