THE superconducting transition temperature, Tc, of the ceramic high-temperature superconductor YBa2Cu3O6+xis known to depend not only on the oxygen stoichiometry x (0 < x < 1) but also on the specific ordering of the oxygen atoms in the basal CuO planes1–7. Here we present computer simulations of the formation of oxygen-ordered domains of orthorhombic… CONTINUE READING
