Imaginary Part of Infrared Conductivity: Comparison of s-and d-wave superconductor

  • J. P. Carbotte
  • C. Jiang


We calculate the product of frequency (ω) multiplied into the imaginary part of the optical conductivity σ2(ω). For an s-wave superconductor with impurity scattering, this function exhibits a large characteristic dip around twice the gap value while a d-wave superconductor shows smooth behaviour.
