    Raman measurements in YBa2Cu3Ox (x=6.72-6.82) high-T-c superconductors reveal intense phonon scattering due to an electronic resonance localized near oxygen vacancies on the CuO chains. Below room temperature the resonance can be photobleached in a manner similar to reported persistent photoinduced superconductivity effects, indicating photon-assisted oxygen ordering or electron vacancy capture. By comparing Raman and x-ray diffraction data we establish a correlation between the stability of the photoinduced state and the oxygen-ordering kinetics in the CuO chains.
