We have successfully synthesized new electron-doped cuprates Li xSr2CuO2Cl2 with x ≦ 0.10 and LixSr2CuO2Br2 with x ≦ 0.34 using an electrochemical Li-intercalation technique. The electrochemical Li-intercalation has been carried out at room temperature under a constant potential of 500 mV vs. Li/Li+ using a three-electrode cell set up as LixSr2CuO2X2 (X = Cl, Br)|1.0 M LiClO4/PC|Li. A sheet of Li was used as a reference electrode also. The magnetic susceptibility measurements have revealed the appearance of superconductivity in LixSr2CuO2Br2. The superconducting transition temperature, Tc, is 8 K and independent of the Li-content x, while the superconducting volume fraction at 2 K exhibits the maximum at x ∼ 0.15. In addition, no superconductivity has been observed in LixSr2CuO2Cl2.
