|Abstract:||Effects of the substitution of divalent A (Ca, Sr or Ba) ion in Ce excess non-superconducting Nd1.82Ce0.18CuO4.09 compound, leading to revival of superconductivity, are studied by measuring absorption edges of all the cations with synchrotron radiation. It is found that in these NACCO samples, Cu exists mainly in the 2+ state; the weak pre-edge feature near the Cu+ position is marginally affected due to A(2+) ions. Except for the case of Pa doping, a fall in the intensity of the white line at the Cu K-edge is observed. This is attributed to a decrease in lattice oxygen content (oxygen vacancy creation) leading to an increase in electron carriers. It is noted that when the effective charge on Cu is less than or equal to 1.88, the T'-type samples are superconducting.|
