Abstract

Based on X-ray diffraction and electron microscopy it is shown that oxides of the general formula LaBa2Cu3O7−δ become tetragonal when δ deviates slightly from 0. This tetragonal structure is similar to that of La3−xBa3+xCu6O14+δ, with a cubic perovskite subcell and triple periodicity. Electron micrographs of these tetragonal oxides show 90° microdomains. Orthorhombic LaBa2Cu3O7−δ with high Tc (~77 K) is found only when δ⋍0; this sample is subject to formation of twins. Fluorine substitution seems to favor superconductivity.
