Abstract

We have made careful measurements of the resistivity vs. temperature in a sample of polycrystalline YBa2Cu3O7-δ and have fit the data to a theoretical expression for the fluctuation-enhanced conductivity in the normal state. From this fit, we infer a value for the zero-temperature Ginzberg-Landau coherence length ξ(0) of 21±5Å.
