Superconductivity of Cu_2S doped Bi-Pb-Sr-CaCu-O system has been investigated by resistance, X-ray diffraction and XPS measurements. It was found that an appropriate amount of Cu_2S can lower the optimum sintering temperature and enhance the formation of the high-T_c phase. The analyses of XPS spectra reveal that the addition of Cu_2S causes the negative chemical shifts of the Cu 2p_(3/2) main peaks and the diminution of their satellite areast suggesting that the hole contents decrease with increasing Cu_2S concentration.

Key words: Superconductivity, Cu2S doped Bi-Pb-Sr-Ca-Cu-O system, R-T, XRD, XPS
