Abstract

We report the results of our non-resonant microwave absorption (NRMA) studies on single crystals of $Tl_2Ba_2CaCu_2O_8$ (Tl 2212) which reflect the occurrence of intrinsic Josephson coupling in these crystals. We have studied the magnetic field induced microwave absorption at various temperatures from 4.2K to $T_c (-104K)$ using a standard CW EPR spectrometer $(H_{dc}\parallel c)$. We observe the appearance of a characteristic feature in the NRMA signals similar to the ones observed earlier by us in $Bi_2Sr_2CaCu_2O_8 (Bi 2212)$ starting a few degrees below $T_c$, which on cooling passes through a maximum in intensity before disappearing at a further low temperature. This behaviour is attributed to the appearance, strengthening and disappearance of Josephson response consequent to the temperature dependence of the viscosity of the Josephson medium between the $CuO_2$ superconducting sheets.
