The rare earth ions order at low temperature similar to "conventional" magnetic superconductors (77-85), while in the de-oxygenated, insulating state the Cu spins order above room temperature (68-77).
Finally, we note that these magnetic superconductors have generated renewed interest very recently with the discovery of the mixed ruthenate-cuprate Ru[Sr.
