The knowledge of the charge carrier distribution among the different orbitals of Cu and O is a precondition for the understanding of the physical properties of various Cu-O frameworks. We employ electron energy-loss spectroscopy to elucidate the charge carrier plasmon dispersion in (La, Ca)xSr14−xCu24O41 in dependency of x as well as temperature. We observe that the energy of the plasmon increases upon increasing Ca content, which signals an internal charge redistribution between the two Cu-O subsystems. Moreover, a comparison of the experimental plasmon excitations with RPA-like calculations indicates that the holes which are transferred to the Cu2O3 ladders are mainly located on O orbitals in the rungs and to a much lesser extent in those in the legs. This is related to a different filling of the bonding and antibonding band leading to an orbital dependent Mott transition.
