We report on temperature-dependent reflectance measurements on several single crystals with in the far-infrared range (5 meV meV) with . Performing a Kramers-Kronig transformation, we derive the optical conductivity and the real part of the dielectric constant . Fitting the data with a two-fluid model, we obtained the superfluid carrier density and the scattering rate. The crystals of oxygen content x< 6.93, i.e., below the maximum value of Tc, show a linear dependence of the superfluid carrier density with temperature, consistent with the wave model. The data for the overdoped crystals give evidence for superconductivity of the chain carriers.
