Flaky single crystals of a new high-Tcoxide Bi2Sr2CaCu2Oywith dimensions of the order of 1×1×0.1 mm3have been prepared using a CuO flux method. The electrical resistivity shows a sharp superconducting transition at 80.6 K. The upper critical field Hc2was determined to be very anisotropic. The values of -dHc2dT for H//c-axis and H⊥c-axis are 0.39 T/K and 7.3 T/K, respectively. The ratio of -dHc2dT to -dHc2dT is 19. The value of Hc2(0) for H⊥c-axis is estimated to be as large as 400 T. The Ginzburg-Landau coherence length along the c-axis at 0 K ξ (0) is 2.1 Å, suggesting quasi-two-dimensional superconductivity.
