  • Samples with different fractions of structural modulation were synthesized in order to study the effect of a defective modulated structure on the critical temperature T c of Hg-1234. Electron microscopy revealed the existence of modulated and unmodulated Hg-1234 structures in these samples. Measurements of critical temperature T c on these samples revealed that the structural modulation significantly suppresses the T c . For the Hg-1234 sample without the structural modulation, the T c was found to be close to the highest T c for the Hg-1223 phase. 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
