Paper Abstract

Reproducibility of phonon structures in the tunneling conductance is studied by using mechanical Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8/Au contacts. The structures are much weaker than a previous clear phonon structure for a BiSr2CaCu2O8/GaAs junction, and a smearing of the structures is discussed. The step-like increase in a critical temperature Tc with a number of CuO2 layer is explained as a natural consequence of the phonon mechanism in a layered lattice. For explaining an extraordinarily large relative gap, 2Δ(0)/kB Tc, and a Tc dependent isotope effect, an Eliashberg-magnetic pair break scenario is proposed for underdoped oxides.
