The superconducting properties and structure of Y(Ba2-xYx)Cu3O7+δ and Bi2 Sr2-x Cax Cu2O7+δ are described. In the former material the Ba sites in the YBa2Cu3O7 structure is doped by the smaller sized Y3+ ion to give a non-superconducting phase. Similar doping by Sr2+ ions can also be achieved to give a structure which shows a broadened bulk superconducting transition with Tc = 85K. When the Ba:Sr ratio is 1:1 a resistive anomaly is observed near ∼200K. The Bi -superconductor becomes superconducting near 90K with a resistive and diamagnetic transition at 112K. The structure of the ordered phase of the Bi superconductor has been obtained by high resolution electron microscope imaging and electron diffraction.
