Paper Abstract

We have found that the structure of the CuO2 plane of Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+y (Bi2212) is anisotropic. Experimental investigation of the Cu site configurations in the CuO2 plane of Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+y (Bi2212) by XANES and EXAFS shows that the quasi 2D Fermi liquid is confined in a superlattice of quantum stripes of width L running in the x direction. We have found that the recently proposed mechanism to rise the critical temperature by the confinement of an electron gas in superlattices and tuning the Fermi level to a shape resonance is verified. In fact the component of the Fermi wavevector kFy in the y direction perpendicular satisfies the condition kFy equals 2(pi) /L in Bi2212. This resonance gives an amplification of the critical temperature Tc by a factor of order of 5 in comparison with the critical temperature of the homogeneous CuO2 plane estimated to be about 15 - 20 K.
