Title: A Reproducible Approach of Preparing High-Quality Overdoped Bi 2 Sr 2 CaCu 2 O 8+δ Single Crystals by Oxygen Annealing and Quenching Method

Abstract

Here, we report a reproducible approach in preparing high-quality overdoped Bi2Sr2 CaCu2 O8+δ (Bi2212) single crystals by annealing Bi2212 crystals in high oxygen pressure followed by a fast quenching. High-quality overdoped and heavily overdoped Bi2212 single crystals are obtained by controlling the annealing oxygen pressure. Furthermore, we find that, beyond a limit of oxygen pressure that can achieve most heavily overdoped Bi2212 with a Tc ~63 K, the annealed Bi2212 begins to decompose. This accounts for the existence of the hole-doping limit and thus the Tc limit in the heavily overdoped region of Bi2212 by the oxygen annealing process. Our results provide a reliable way in preparing high-quality overdoped and heavily overdoped Bi2212 crystals that are important for studies of the physical properties, electronic structure and superconductivity mechanism of the cuprate superconductors.
