Tunneling measurements have been carried out on heavily underdoped and slightly overdoped () single crystals by using a break-junction technique. We find that in-plane tunneling spectra below are the combination of incoherent part from the pseudogap and coherent quasiparticle peaks. There is a correlation between the magnitude of the pseudogap and the magnitude of the superconducting gap in . We find that the quasiparticle conductance peaks are caused by condensed soliton-like excitations.
