The discovery in 1986 of high-temperature superconductivity in lanthanum-alkaline-earth cuprates by Bednorz and Müller [1] stimulated a torrent of studies on the search for, synthesis of, and determination of the physical characteristics of an enormous number of various oxides mainly based on cuprates. The first result of this broad search was the observation of yttrium-alkaline-earth superconductors with higher transition temperatures into the superconducting state [2]. Reports [3,4] of superconductivity in the Bi-Sr-Cu-0 system prompted a comprehensive study of superconducting materials that do not contain rare earths. An abrupt increase of T c was achieved after partial replacement of Sr by Ca [5]. The transition temperature was further increased in Tl-alkaline-earth cuprates [6–10], which also do not contain rare earths.
