Tl2Ba2Ca2Cu3O10+x (Tl-2223) superconducting films with microstructure consisted of submillimeter size grains combining with reactive ion etching technique, has enabled us to investigate the transport properties of this material in a more controllable manner. Both conductivity fluctuations based on the Aslamazov-Larkin theory and the Kosterlitz-Thouless transitions were studied to delineate the two dimensional nature of the material. It was found that, depending on the substrate used, the effective thickness of critical fluctuation and the detailed features of the K-T transition were very different. For films deposited on LaAlO3(100) substrates, the effective thickness of critical fluctuation is about 35 Åcompared to a value of 17.5 Åobtained for films deposited on MgO(100) substrates, roughly equal to the c-axis lattice constant and the distance between the trilayer CuO2 planes, respectively. The effective vortex dielectric constant measuring the correlations between vortex pairs near K-T transition were estimated to be 3.0 and 1.6 for films on LaAlO3 and on MgO, repectively. Possible mechanisms based on the defect structures are proposed to account for the observed results.
