The electrical resistance in the range of TC-300 K in the layer planes of YBa2Cu3O7-δ single crystals with a range of oxygen deficiency (providing a range of TC from 78 to 92 K) was investigated. The experimental data is approximated by an expression that accounts for the scattering of electrons on phonons, as well as on defects and the fluctuation conductivity in a 3-D model of the Aslamazov-Larkin theory. According to this approximation, depending upon the oxygen deficiency, the Debye temperature varies from 245 to 400 K, coherence length ξC(0) ≈0.5 Å.
