ABSTRACT
We have determined the crystal structure of the single-phase stoichiometric high-temperature superconductor in the Y-Ba-Cu-O system using high-resolution neutron powder diffraction. This compound has an orthorhombic structure with space group Pmmm and lattice constants a=3.8231 Å, b=3.8864 Å, and c=11.6807 Å. The structure consists of ‘‘dimpled’’ CuO2 layers in the a-b planes loosely bonded by one-dimensional fencelike square-planar CuO3 chains in the b-c planes.

    The in-plane structure of single-crystal samples of Tl2Ba2CaCu2O8 has been imaged at room temperature using a scanning tunneling microscope. Atomic-resolution surface images exhibit areas in which the structure has tetragonal symmetry (peak spacing 2.5±0.2 Å) and regions in which the...

    Using an inductively coupled rf plasma operated at atmospheric pressure, superconducting thin films of Y1Ba2Cu3O7-x have been grown in situ on single-crystal yttria-stabilized zirconia [100] from an aerosol precursor. X-ray diffraction and rocking curve results indicate that the films are highly...

    Transmission electron microscopy shows that sintered YBa2Cu3O7 contains many planar defects in the a-b plane. They range from stacking faults to 10–100 nm thick sheets of disordered material that extend through the entire crystal grains. The stacking faults may be precursors for the thick...

    Atom Probe mass analysis, at 85 K, using a wide-angle instrument was used to measure the oxygen content and metallic stoichiometry of the near-surface region of the superconducting ceramic oxide Eu1Ba2Cu3O7-x (x[bar_over_tilde:_approx._equal_to]0.1) after vacuum exposure at room temperature....

    Room-temperature laser-induced voltages were observed in unsupported, polycrystalline wafers of YBa2Cu3O7-x in the absence of a transport current. Peak voltages of ∼1 V were detected in response to 40 mJ pulses of 532 nm light. The rise and fall times for the signals were detector limited....
