    By using flux method, we have grown single crystals of NdFeAsO0.82F0.18 at ambient pressures. Resistive measurements reveal a surprising discovery that the anisotropy Γ=(mc/mab)1/2 is below 5, which is much smaller than the theoretically calculated value. The data measured up to 400 K show a...
