Using photoemission (PES) spectroscopy and a first-principles band-structure calculation, we have investigated the electronic structure of perovskite-type Ti-Cr oxides Sr1 - (x + y) Lax + y Ti1 - x Crx O3, in which the charge and spin density can be controlled. It was found that the near-Fermi level (EF) electronic structure consisted of a Cr 3d localized state and a Ti 3d itinerant state that were well separated in energy. The spectral weight of the Cr 3d state was proportional to x, demonstrating a controllable spin density. In contrast, the near-EF spectral weight exhibited different behavior. The band theory has reproduced the essential features of the Cr and Ti 3d states as well as the O 2p ones, but failed to predict the location of the Cr 3d and O 2p states. Implications of this discrepancy have been discussed in connection with calculated magnetic moments.
