Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 545)


The basic parameters describing the superconducting state, such as the penetration depth and the coherence length of the members of HgBa2Can−1Cu n O2n+2+x (n = 1, 2, and 3) are presented. The data was analyzed in order to determine superconducting carrier concentration and effective mass. The low position of the irreversibility line in HT phase diagram of HgBa2Can−1CunO2n+2+x is related to relatively small values of the thermodynamic critical field in comparison with that one of YBa2Cu3O7−x . The necessary conditions to be fulfilled to improve the irreversibility line position for Hg-based compounds are discussed.
