We studied theoretically the c-axis Josephson critical current for bicrystals of high temperature superconductors twisted an angle (phi) 0 about the c-axis with respect to eachother. We used the effective Lawrence-Doniach models appropriate for the cases or pure s-wave or dx2-y2-wave order parameters, and of a dominant dx2-y2-wave order parameter combined with a subdominant one of either s-wave or dxy-wave form, as a function of the temperature and (phi) 0. Our results demonstrate that this new phase- sensitive experiment can serve as a very useful test of order parameter symmetry. In particular, the recent zero- field experiments in the vicinity of Tc by Li et al. on c- axis twist junctions of Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+(delta ) are very difficult to explain with a dominant dx2-y2-wave order parameter.
