Abstract

X-ray diffraction patterns of superconducting $LnBa_2Cu_30_{7-\delta}$ (Ln = Nd, Gd, Dy or Er) compositions $(0.3 \leq \delta \leq 0.4;T_c 45-60K)$, show a significant change on annealing bulk samples at 473K for 46-60 hr6. The diffraction patterns of the annealed samples are very simple, with a low angle reflection corresponding to a c parameter of \sim 27 \AA, similar to that of 124 cuprates. The annealed product has a highly disordered structure, but contains lamellae of the 124 structure, as confirmed by electron microscopy.
