Abstract

In situ resistance measurements have been used to investigate the oxygen in diffusion in tetragonal YBa2Cu3O7-x oxide. The oxygen content has been measured by nuclear reaction and by weighing; x-ray diffraction has been used to determine the crystalline structure. The polycrystalline bulk material with x=0.65 has been heated in oxygen to 200370°C. As a function of time the resistance curves continuously decrease and present two slopes: fast at the beginning and slow later. At first the material is tetragonal and nonsuperconducting. Complementary weight measurements indicate a significant increase only after a delay, and the oxygen uptake is associated with the slow variation of resistance. The initial slopes of the isothermal resistance versus time curves follow, in an Arrhenius plot, a straight line, suggesting a process with an activation energy of 0.400.05 eV. The sharp decrease in resistivity can be attributed to the presence of a thin continuous conductive skin around the grains or, more likely, to a disorder-order transformation activated by the presence of oxygen and involving a large part of the material. A process having an activation energy of 0.90.1 eV is responsible for the slow variation of the resistance. This is in agreement with published data obtained for oxygen in diffusion in similar conditions. © 1989 The American Physical Society.
