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 , vortex theories of The Synchrotron Radiation Source (SRS) at the Daresbury Laboratory in Cheshire, United Kingdom is a second generation synchrotron radiation source. inhomogeneous Adj. 1. inhomogeneous - not homogeneous
heterogeneous, heterogenous - consisting of elements that are not of the same kind or nature; "the population of the United States is vast and heterogeneous" superconductors, and means of establishing positions and constants of equilibrium in YBCO with oxygen.
