We investigated the optical-conductivity spectra, σ(ω), of (Formula presented) ((Formula presented) 0.1, 0.3, 0.5, 0.6, 0.8, 0.9, and 1.0) samples between 5 meV and 30 eV at room temperature. With the hole doping, σ(ω) showed double-peak midgap structures below 3 eV. The lower frequency peak was assigned to an interatomic (Formula presented) transition and the higher frequency one was attributed to an intra-atomic transition between Jahn-Teller (JT) split (Formula presented) levels. This work demonstrated that the local JT effects remained for most samples except (Formula presented).
