Magnetic measurements on heavily overdoped x 4, , , ( x) and single crystals reveal a new type of magnetization hysteresis loops characterized by the vanishing of the usual central peak near zero field. Since this effect has been observed in various systems with very different structural details, it probably reflects a generic behavior for all high-temperature superconductors. This easy penetration of magnetic flux can be understood in the picture of percolative superconductivity due to the inhomogeneous electronic state in heavily overdoped regime.
