Here we report a new class of superconductors prepared by high-pressure synthesis in the quaternary family ReFeAsO1−δ (Re=Sm, Nd, Pr, Ce, La) without fluorine doping. The onset superconducting critical temperature (Tc) in these compounds increases with the reduction of the Re atom size, and the highest Tc obtained so far is 55 K in SmFeAsO1−δ. For the NdFeAsO1−δ compound with different oxygen concentration a dome-shaped phase diagram was found.
