TN may be related to the Dirac conelike dispersion of the electronic bands. Below T-N new features emerge in the optical conductivity that are associated with the reconstruction Fermi surface and the gapping of bands at Delta(1) similar or equal to 45-80 meV, and Delta(2) similar or equal to 110-210 meV. The reduction in the spectral weight associated with the free carriers is captured by the gap structure; specifically, the spectral weight from the narrow Drude term appears to be transferred into the low-energy gap feature, while the missing weight from the broad term shifts to the high-energy gap.
