As has been discussed elsewhere (Chap.3), the superconducting properties of the new high-Tc copper oxides are strongly affected by chemical and structural disorder. The factors that may generate defects in the oxygen framework are numerous and have several origins, including oxygen content, size of the grain, nature of the precursors and thermal treatments. They can result either in strong inhomogeneities, for the most stoichiometric YBa2Cu3O7−δ superconductors (δ ≃ 0), or in various microstructures, for the reduced ones (δ ≥ 0.3). All these features can be considered a consequence of the disproportionation of Cu(II) into Cu(III) and Cu(I) to take into account the copper coordination states with respect to the oxygen deficiency δ.
