Ca2CuO2Cl2-yBry (0 ≤ y ≤ 2) has the K2NiF4-type structure with halogens (Cl and Br) at their apical sites and superconductivity can be achieved by substituting Ca2+ sites with Na+. We have succeeded in making a comprehensive superconducting phase diagram of Ca2-xNa xCuO2Cl2-yBry by focusing on special attention to the relationship between the superconductivity and the Cu and Cl/Br distance in Ca2-xNaxCuO2Cl 2-yBry. We were successful in continuously changing the length of c-axis, which is closely related to the distance between the apical site and the CuO2 plane, or the distance between Cu and Cl/Br. Without changing the bonding distance between Cu and O in the CuO2 plane. This is the first example of this kind of control in cuprate superconductors.
