The aim of this chapter is to provide selected experimental phase diagrams of high Tc superconductors to represent various active systems of research. Among current systems, the BaO-Y2O3-CuO (BYC), BaO-R2O3-CuO (BRC), and BSCCO systems have been studied most extensively because of their viable industrial applications in the coated-conductors and wire/tape development areas. A brief description of some of the frequently encountered terms used in phase equilibrium work as well as a few experimental techniques involved in determining some of these diagrams will also be given prior to the discussion of the diagrams.
