We present two types of experiments which probe the high-frequency conductivity of BSCCO films in the presence of large superfluid velocities, hi the first the superflow is the static velocity field associated with the vortex lattice. In the second the velocity is dynamic, induced by high-intensity single-cycle electromagnetic pulses. We show that intrinsic pair-breaking in a d-wave superconductor can provide a unified explanation for both effects.
