We studied the evolution of the electronic structure across the quantum critical point in V-doped Cr employing high-resolution photoemission spectroscopy. Experimental results exhibit signatures of pseudogap and orbital Kondo resonance peak at low temperatures for all the compositions studied. The pseudogap and the Kondo peak reduce with V doping but remain finite across the quantum critical point indicating their relevance in widely discussed quantum phases in correlated electron systems. The spectral lineshape near the Fermi level exhibit (ϵF − ϵ)0.25 dependence evidencing deviation from Fermi-liquid behavior.
