Time-domain terahertz (THz) spectroscopy was carried out on a c-axis oriented Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+δ (BSCCO) thin film. We extracted various optical parameters at frequencies from 0.3 to 1.0 THz and temperatures from 5 to room temperature by numerically solving the observed complex transmittance without Kramers-Kronig analysis. As a result, the frequency dependence of surface resistance RS showed different power laws of RS∝f (f<0.5 THz) and RS∝f1/2 (0.5 THz <f) in the superconducting state. Below the characteristic frequency, fC≃0.5 THz, rapid increase in the density of supercarrier, NS, was obtained. These obtained results well explained the electromagnetic-wave radiation property which had been observed on the same BSCCO thin film.
