Annealing as-grown electron-doped cuprates under a low oxygen-partial-pressure condition is a necessary step to achieve superconductivity. It has been recently found that the so-called protect annealing results in much better superconducting properties in terms of the superconducting transition temperature and volume fraction. In this article, we report on angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy studies of a protect-annealed electron-doped cuprate on annealing condition dependent superconducting and pseudo-gap properties. Remarkably, we found that the one showing a better superconducting property possesses almost no pseudo-gap while others have strong pseudo-gap feature due to an anti-ferromagnetic order.
