We report the results of the c-axis infrared spectroscopy of x in high magnetic field oriented parallel to the planes. A significant suppression of the superfluid density with magnetic field is observed for both underdoped (x=0.125) and overdoped (x=0.17) samples. We show that the existing theoretical models of the Josephson vortex state fail to consistently describe the observed effects and discuss possible reasons for the discrepancies.
