Foutana F., Persico V., Livanov D.V., Balestrino G.
Electrical resistance of Bi2Sr2Ca2Cu30|o+x c-oriented platelets in proximity of the superconducting transition have been studied. The analysis of data was performed self-consistently in terms of the Aslamazov Larkin theory of fluctuation conductivity well above the transition and within the context of the Coulomb gas analogy for vortex fluctuations at temperatures below the mean-field transition temperature. We found for the first time the values of anisotropy parameter and effective interlayer hopping energy in Bi2Sr2Ca2Cu3O|0+i phase.
