Abstract

Single crystals of La1.87Ca1.13Cu2O6 have been successfully grown using CuO flux. Although the electrical resistivity of the as-grown crystals is semiconducting, superconductivity appears by high oxygen pressure (∼ 300 atm) annealing. The transition temperature is between 50 K (onset) and 40 K (end point). The full magnetic shielding effect is observed under zero field cooling and the Meissner volume fraction is about 3% of that expected for an ideal diamagnet. Electrical and magnetic measurements confirm that the crystals have bulk nature of superconductivity. The anisotropies of the electrical resistivity and the coherence length are small in comparison with other copper oxide superconductors.
