States of Oxygen Ordering in YBa2Cu3Oz

  • D. de Fontaine


The compound YBa2Cu3Oz (1-2-3) was the first one whose superconducting transition temperature exceeded the technologically important temperature of 77K1. Actually, the 1-2-3 compound at close to oxygen stoichiometry z=7 became superconducting at about Tc=90K, with Tc dropping by increments as z decreased from the value 7.
