Abstract

High Tc superconductors, (YBa2Cu3O7-δ)1-x(Sn02)x with x ranging from 0.00 to 0.06 were prepared in air under optimum sintering conditions. Superconductivity and the onset of orthorhombic-tetragonal structure are discussed in relation to the results of X-ray diffraction studies. Meissner effect above liquid nitrogen temperature was observed for all the samples, suggesting the retention of orthorhombic structure in the system up to 6% Sn substitution.
