Abstract Hg doping of the triple-CuO 2 layer oxide superconductor Tl 2− x Hg x Ba 2 Ca 2 Cu 3 O 10 (Tl-2223) is investigated. Modest substitution of Hg 2+ ions for Tl 3+ ions leads to the stabilization of the Tl-2223 structure and an apparently optimized superconducting onset temperature T c =130 K. The situation is reminiscent of partial Bi ions replacement by Pb ions in the lower- T c Bi based oxide superconductors. Overdoping with Hg in Tl-2223 leads again to a decrease in T c .
