Quasiparticle tunneling spectra of the electron-doped (n-type) infinite-layer cuprate Sr0.9La0.1CuO2 reveal characteristics that counter a number of common phenomena in the hole-doped (p-type) cuprates. The optimally doped Sr0.9La0.1CuO2 with T-c = 43 K exhibits a momentum-independent superconducting gap Delta = 13.0 +/- 1.0 meV that substantially exceeds the BCS value, and the spectral characteristics indicate insignificant quasiparticle damping by spin fluctuations and the absence of pseudogap. The response to quantum impurities in the Cu sites also differs fundamentally from that of the p-type cuprates with d(x2-y2)-wave pairing symmetry.
