Up to now, the value of the dynamic critical exponent z is still an open question. We have studied this exponent in the intermediate (XY) critical regime in zero field for a set of high quality YBa2Cu3O7-delta Single crystals in terms of Fisher-Fisher-Huse (FFH) dynamic scaling, and using previously obtained values for the critical exponents cu of the de critical conductivity fluctuations. In this regime (i.e. the absence of Coulomb interactions), one would expect model-E dynamics (z = 1.5) to apply with the conserved charge-density conjugate to the phase fluctuations. However, we find the dynamic critical exponent to be z = 2, which is in agreement with the suggestion of FFH that due to plasma fluctuations, fully relaxational dynamics, model A (z = 2), should be appropriate.
