Paper Abstract

Results are reported of an infrared reflectivity study of two high Tc superconducting Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8 plus delta single crystals. One of the samples was optimally- doped (Tc equals 91 K) and the other over-doped (Tc equals 73 K). It is observed that the reflectivity of the optimally-doped crystal is near unity at low temperature (10 K) and at frequencies below 400 cm-1. The reflectivity of the over-doped crystal is significantly less than unity. The dynamical conductivity and the penetration depth of the optimally-doped crystal are similar to values for optimally-doped YBa2Cu3O7- delta single crystal. However, the over-doped crystal displays significantly larger low frequency absorption. The results can be understood within a d-wave picture in which pair breaking increases with increasing hole doping and contributes to a significant quasiparticle density below Tc.
