This paper compares the wavelet transform of the optical conductivity of Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+x in both the normal and the superconducting state. The wavelet transforms of the normal and superconducting state are also compared with wavelet transforms of the Drude model as well as the Lorentz model. The wavelet transform of the collected data for Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+x is similar in shape to the Drude model. The wavelet transform of the collected data in the normal state corresponds to the Drude model with a high scattering rate and the collected data in the superconducting state corresponds to the Drude model with a low scattering rate.
