Abstract: An evidence presented that supports partial gapping of the Fermi surface by a measurement of the Hall frequency from high frequency magneto-optical measurements on underdoped YBa2Cu3O6+x (YBCO) was discussed. It was found that the Hall frequency was obtained independently of the unknown k-space dependence of the carrier scattering rates that complicated the dc Hall effect. It was observed that the frequency dependence of the Hall angle was Drude-like and indicated a quasielastic relaxation process for optimal and underdoped samples. The results show that there was an increase of the Hall frequency in the pseudogap state.
