This thesis is an experimental study of PrBa2Cu408, a member of the cuprate family and a strongly correlated quasi-one-dimensional conductor. Unlike its isostructural neighbour YBa2Cu408, PrBa2Cu408 is non-superconducting down to low temperatures. Moreover, charge transfer is highly anisotropic with conductivity along the CuO chain network almost three orders of magnitude larger than the interchain conductivity.
