[en] The chemical interactions between Bi2Sr3CaO7 (Bi-2310) and Bi2Sr2Ca0.8Dy0.2Cu2O8 (Bi-2212(Dy)) at 965 degrees C were investigated by means of: (i) an interdiffusion couple and (ii) layers deposited by dip coating on oxidized nickel Substrates. The samples were characterized by optical and electron microscopies, energy-dispersive x-ray (EDX) analysis and x-ray diffraction. It turns out that at the peritectic temperature Of Bi-2212(Dy), the Bi-2310 phase reacts with the liquid phase resulting from the peritectic decomposition of the Bi-2212(Dy) phase. Dissolution of Bi-2310 leads to an enrichment in Sr and an impoverishment in Cu of the liquid phase, resulting in a shift of the composition of the insoluble phase towards the Ca-rich end of the (Ca, Sr)O Solid Solution.
