Abstract: In this paper, we employ a continuous Ginzburg-Landau model to study the behaviors of the parallel upper critical field of an intrinsically layered superconductor. Near Tc where the order parameter is nearly homogeneous, the parallel upper critical field is found to vary as (1 - T/Tc)1/2. With a well-localized order parameter, the same field temperature dependence holds over the whole temperature range. The profile of the order parameter at the parallel upper critical field is of a Gaussian type, which is consistent with the usual Ginzburg-Landau theory. In addition, the influences of the unit cell dimension and the average effective masses on the parallel upper critical field and the associated order parameter are also addressed. © 2002 Elsevier Science B.V.
