We report measurements of the "zero field" ac sheet impedance for thin, c-axis–oriented films. For sufficiently thin films of thickness d, the magnetic penetration depth is given by . We find that the temperature and intriguing doping dependence of Lk as well as the amplitude of the perpendicular real-space phase correlation length are fully consistent with the critical behaviour of the three-dimensional XY model and finite-size scaling. Moreover, invoking finite-size scaling, we determine the value of the critical amplitude of .
