The widely held notion that high-temperature superconductivity originates in the cuprate-planes is proven to be faulty. In the cuprates such as YBa2Cu3O7, we argue that the superconductivity resides in the BaO layers. This superconductivity is s-wave, not d-wave, in the bulk. The trio of ruthenate compounds, doped Sr 2 YRuO 6 , GdSr2Cu2RuO8, and Gd2−zCezSr2Cu2RuO10 all superconduct in their SrO layers, which is why they have almost the same ∼49 K onset temperatures for superconductivity.
