Properties of High Tc Superconducting Oxides

Abstract

With the recent discovery of superconductivity at temperatures exceeding 30 K1 and the rapid follow-up discovery of superconductivity at temperatures exceeding 90 K,2 an unprecedented worldwide effort has been directed to exploring these materials and to search for new superconducting compounds. The effort has been remarkably productive, yielding numerous new superconducting compounds, some with transition temperatures Tc in excess of 120 K.3 All of these new materials are oxides and those with highest Tc’s contain copper, generally in a high oxidation state, bonded to oxygen in a near-planar configuration. [The search has yielded one new copper-free compound, potassium doped BaBiO3,4,5 with Tc ~ 30 K, a transition temperature significantly exceeding that of Nb3Ge, the long time record holder (at 23 K)].
