Abstract

High-temperature electrical conductivity and thermopower measurements have been performed on undoped Eu2CaBa2Cu2Ti3O14 and doped and undoped LaYCaBa2Cu2+xTi3-xO14. These quintuple perovskites are members of a family of ordered perovskite-type oxides with double Cu-O sheets and have in-plane Cu-O bond lengths comparable to known superconductors. X-ray diffraction data and transmission electron microscopy show clear evidence of layering in both structures. LaYCaBa2Cu2+xTi3-xO14 exhibits a large-small rare earth ordering on the A′/A″ sites, like its quadruple perovskite counterparts. The transport data indicate that these materials behave similarly to the corresponding quadruple perovskites, but have lower carrier concentrations. The La-Y compound exhibits weaker oxygen partial pressure dependencies in the electrical properties, which are suggestive of a decrease in undesirable oxygen intercalation between the CuO2 sheets. Upon doping with copper on titanium sites, (Cu″Ti), a concomitant amount of oxygen vacancies, (V•• o), are introduced, as evidenced by TGA and in situ electrical property measurements. Possible defect models are presented and discussed in light of data from TGA, electrical property measurements, and quantitative high-resolution TEM.
