All the samples possess single-phase character and their superconducting transition temperatures (TcR = 0) are 85, 90, and 72 K, respectively for Bi2212-MQ, Bi2212-N2, and Bi2212-O2. Though the Bi2212-MQ and Bi2212-N2 samples are in near optimum doping regime, the Bi2212-O2 is an overdoped sample. TcS = 0 values obtained through S(T) data are also in line with those determined from the temperature dependence of resistance (TcR = 0) and dc magnetization (Tcdia). Interestingly, S(T) behavior of the optimally doped Bi2212-MQ and Bi2212-N2 samples is seen to be positive in whole temperature range, the same is found negative for the overdoped Bi2212-O2 sample above TcS = 0. This anomalous S(T) behavior is seen in the light of the recent band structure calculations and the ensuing split Fermi surface as determined by angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy.
