The nominal composition of La1.85Sr0.15Cu1-yMgyO4 superconductors with 0.00≤y≤0.30 are synthesized by the solid state reaction techniques. The structure of these Mg doped samples is characterized by X-ray diffraction studies. The atomic structure parameters are obtained by Rietveld refinements. Some meaningful bond distances are determined according to the refined results. The distance between the two apical oxygen atoms in the CuO6 octahedra changed with the Mg content. The room temperature resistivity for each sample is measured.
