Abstract
Data are derived experimentally for the phase diagram for high-Tc superconductors based on the (Ca(1-x)Y(X))Sr2(Tl(1-z)Pb(z)Cu2)O7. Transport, structure, and specific-heat measurements are described and discussed in terms of the relationships between the metallic/nonsuperconducting, superconducting, and insulating (M-S-I) phases of the cuprate superconductor. The conditions of normal resistivity are shown at 150 K in terms of variation with Y ions in (Ca(1-x)Y(x))Sr2(Tl0.5Pb0.5Cu2)O7, and it is shown that charge carriers at temperatures close to maximum Tc can be studied by means of thermoelectric power. Specific-heat measurements show that fluctuations of superconductivity in state II are very large near the insulating boundary where there are strong pair interactions but few carriers. A systematic trend is revealed that is a function of changing carrier concentration and that has important differences on either side of maximum Tc.
