While $YSr_2Cu_30_7$ cannot be prepared under ambient conditions, partial substitution of the phosphate group for copper, as in $YSr_2Cu_{2.8}$ $(PO_4)_{o.2}0_{y'}$ stabilizes this phase in the orthorhombic structure, hut the material is not superconducting. Superconductivity in $YSr_2Cu_{2.8}(PO_4)_{0.2}O_y$ is obtained by increasing the hole concentration through partial substitution of Y by Ca, as in $Y_{0.7}Ca_{0.3}Sr_2Cu_{2.8}(PO_4)_{0.2}O_y ( T_c\approx47 K)$. By incorporating the phosphate group in orthorhombic $YBaSrCu_3O_7$, a stable tetragonat derivative of the formula $YBaSrCu_{2.8} (PO_4)_{0.2}O_y ( T_c\approx47 K)$ has been prepared; the $T_c$ increases to ~ 70 K by partial substitution of Y by Ca as in $Y_{0.7}Ca_{0.3}BaSrCu_{2.8} ( PO_4 )_{0.2}0_{y'}$
