By using two randomly oriented polycrystalline YBa2Cu3O samples with masses as big as and , but almost optimally doped ( and ) and with excellent stoichiometric homogeneity, the in-plane fluctuation-induced diamagnetism was determined, for the first time in any superconductor, well inside the so-called short wavelength regime in the zero-magnetic-field limit, which corresponds to reduced temperatures, , above typically . It is then shown that these measurements may be explained in terms of the Schmidt limit of the Gaussian-Ginzburg-Landau approach for bilayered superconductors by introducing a total-energy cut-off in the fluctuation spectrum.
