Abstract

The aim of this work is to investigate the temperature dependences both in CuO2 plane and out-of plane resistivities in electron-doped Nd2–xCexCuO4 for x from 0.135 up to 0.15 in order to analyze the anisotropy of the electrical transport in the process of the evolution from antiferromagnetic order in the underdoped region to superconducting order in optimally doped region.

Key words: electron-doped superconductor, anisotropy of transport properties, superconducting films.
