Growth and Characterization of La2-XSrXCuoY and Bi2-XSr2-ZCuoy Crystals


In order to grow large single crystals of the La2-xSrxCuOy and Bi2+xSr2-zCuOy families of high Tc superconductors, we have studied the relationships between nominal Sr composition in the starting materials and the Sr compositions of the resulting products. We present growth, x-ray, and composition data for these samples.
