Polarized and unpolarized neutron scattering have been used to determine the effect of superconduc-
tivity on the magnetic excitation spectra of YBa2Cu3O6.5 Tc 52 K and YBa2Cu3O6.7 Tc 67 K .
Pronounced enhancements of the spectral weight centered around 25 and 33 meV, respectively, are
observed below Tc in both crystals, compensated predominantly by a loss of spectral weight at higher
energies. The data provide important clues to the origin of the 40 meV magnetic resonance peak in
YBa2Cu3O7. [S0031-9007(96)02291-0]
PACS numbers: 74.25.Jb, 74.25.Kc, 74.72.Bk
Recently a new magnetic resonance mode has been
found in the superconducting state of YBa2Cu3O7 by
inelastic neutron scattering. The mode occurs at an
energy of 40 meV and wave vector q p a, p a , and
