The magnetic field dependent r.f. (20 MHz) power dissipation, P(H) vs H, for H-r.f. \\ c \\ H in Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8 (Bi 2 2 1 2) Single crystals shows an onset at T similar to 102 K, nearly 20 K above the nominal T-C (similar to 82 K). In contrast, for H-r.f. \\ ab, H \\ c, the onset of losses occurs at the T-C. One possible reason for the onset at similar to 102 K could be the Bi2Sr2Ca2Cu3O8 (Bi 2 2 2 3) inclusions with a T-C similar to 100-110 K. However, our non-resonant r.f. absorption studies cast doubt on this conclusion and point towards an alternative explanation in terms of superconducting fluctuations above the T-C of Bi 2 2 1 2 single crystals. Support for this is provided by the characteristic temperature dependence of the magnetic field dependent r.f. dissipation.
