The results obtained from neutron-diffraction experiments performed predominantly at the Frank Laboratory of Neutron Physics (Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, Dubna) in order to study the crystal structure of various mercury-based superconductors are surveyed. Taken together, these results form a unique set in terms of their diversity and precision. Owing to this, they can be used as a basis for drawing a number of conclusions that are of paramount importance for obtaining deeper insight into the origin of superconductivity in complex copper oxides.
