The three copper layer ∼ 110 K Bi2Sr2Ca2Cu3O10+δ phase has been prepared as a nearly pure compound by alloying with Pb under various oxygen pressures, and by long-term annealing. Studies of the superconducting properties and the atomic level microstructure of these samples using high resolution electron microscope imaging, are reported. The role of the substituent atoms in producing the 110 K phase is briefly discussed.
