We present electron-tunneling spectroscopy of slightly overdoped (Bi2212) single crystals with –90 K in a temperature range between 14 K and 290 K using a break-junction technique. The pseudogap which has been detected above appears at . The analysis of the spectra shows that there is a contribution to the pseudogap above , which disappears approximately at 110–115 K. We associate this contribution with the presence of incoherent Cooper pairs.
