The oxygen-order dependent emergence of superconductivity in YBa2Cu3O6+x is studied in a comparative way on pair samples having the same oxygen content and thermal history, but different Cu(1)Ox chain arrangements deriving from their intercalated and deintercalated nature. Structural and electronic nonequivalence of pairs samples is detected in the critical region and found to be related, on microscopic scale, to a different average chain length, which, on being experimentally determined by nuclear quadrupole resonance (NQR), sheds light on the concept of critical chain length for hole doping efficiency.

Abstract

The oxygen-order dependent emergence of superconductivity in YBa2Cu3O6+x is studied in a comparative way on pair samples having the same oxygen content and thermal history, but different Cu(1)Ox chain arrangements deriving from their intercalated and deintercalated nature. Structural and electronic nonequivalence of pairs samples is detected in the critical region and found to be related, on microscopic scale, to a different average chain length, which, on being experimentally determined by nuclear quadrupole resonance (NQR), sheds light on the concept of critical chain length for hole doping efficiency.
