    In typical hole-doped high-Tc cuprates, the optimum doping is achieved at the doping level p ∼ 0.16 (= p opt ). However impurity dopings sometimes alters p opt value. In this sense, p opt ∼ 0.16 is thought not to be universal. Here, we studied the doping dependence of T c and some transport characteristics for several Ni impurity doped Bi 2 Sr 2 CaCu 2 O 8+δ single crystals. Doping levels were precisely determined by thermoelectric measurements and oxygen contents δ. We found that 1. Ni valence is almost same as Cu, 2. p opt shifts toward higher doping, 3. pseudogap opening temperature T is not affected by Ni impurity. The results are consistent with the model that the shift in p opt is due to the doping dependent pair breaking effect. This means that the shift is superficial and the essential universality p opt ∼ 0.16 is impurity doped regime.
