Yttrium barium copper oxide Yttrium barium copper oxide, often abbreviated YBCO, is a chemical compound with the formula YBa2Cu3O7. This material, a famous "high-temperature superconductor", achieved prominence because it was the first material to achieve superconductivity  superconductors (YBCOs) were the first materials that could superconduct above the boiling point boiling point, temperature at which a substance changes its state from liquid to gas. A stricter definition of boiling point is the temperature at which the liquid and vapor (gas) phases of a substance can exist in equilibrium.  of nitrogen. As such, they are receiving a great deal of attention, as indicated by some of these nine articles and two commentaries. Articles address the formation of structurally disordered YBCO under milder conditions by using chemically activated reagents and nanoscale investigation techniques. Research and review articles include applications of bulk superconductors to synchrotron radiation sources Coordinates:  The Synchrotron Radiation Source (SRS) at the Daresbury Laboratory in Cheshire, United Kingdom is a second generation[1] synchrotron radiation source. , vortex theories of inhomogeneous Adj. 1. inhomogeneous - not homogeneous

 superconductors, and means of establishing positions and constants of equilibrium in YBCO with oxygen. This does not include an academic affiliation for the editor, the audiences is not specified, and readers are urged to verify all data independently. Source of articles is unknown.
