Abstract

The n= 1, 2 and 3 members of the $Bi_2(Ca, Sr)_{n+1}Cu_nO_{2n + 4}$ series of superconductors have been synthesized and characterized by a variety of techniques including electrical resistivity, magnetic susceptibility and non-resonant microwave absorption. Based on studies with a number of compositions, the $T_c$ ranges for the n = 1, 2 and 3 members are suggested to be 60 \pm 20 K, 82 \pm 8 K. and 107 \pm 3 K, the rather broad ranges arising from differences in sample stoichiometry and homogeneity. Electron spectroscopic studies show that Cu is mainly in the 2+ and 1 + states suggesting the importance of oxygen holes.
