Title: Two-Dimensional Superconductivity in the Cuprates Revealed by Atomic-Layer-by- Layer Molecular Beam Epitaxy

Abstract

Various electronic phases displayed by cuprates that exhibit high temperature superconductivity continue to attract much interest. We provide a short review of several experiments that we have performed aimed at investigating the superconducting state in these compounds. Measurements on single-phase films, bilayers, and superlattices all point to the conclusion that the high-temperature superconductivity in these materials is an essentially quasi-two dimensional phenomenon. With proper control over the film growth, high-temperature superconductivity can exist in a single copper oxide plane with the critical temperatures as high as that achieved in the bulk samples.
