Samples with nominal starting compositions of Tl0.5Pb0.5Sr2−yYbyCaCu2O7 (y = 0–0.6) were synthesized using conventional solid-state synthesis method. Temperature dependent electrical resistance measurements on the series showed that the normal state behavior and superconducting properties can be controlled by adjusting Yb concentration to achieve maximum critical temperature (Tc). The best superconducting behavior for the series was observed for Tl0.5Pb0.5Sr1.8Yb0.2CaCu2O7 with onset critical temperature (Tc onset) of 105 K. Results of critical temperature (Tc) measurements, microstructure investigation using scanning electron microscope (SEM) and powder X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis are presented. The effects of Yb substitutions are discussed in terms of Tc, Tl1212 phase formation and the concept of average Cu valence.
