Microwave resonance of magnetic surface states in antimony

The microwave resonance of the magnetic surface states in antimony has been observed at 23 and 70 GHz and the orientation dependences of the resonance fields have been studied in detail in the trigonal-bisectrix and binary-bisectrix planes. Two dominant series and two less prominent series of the resonances have been observed and interpreted in terms of the Fermi surface of antimony. The two dominant series are attributed to the approximately cylindrical portions of the electron and hole Fermi surfaces. The other two are discussed in connection with the nonellipsoidal shape of the Fermi surface of holes. The Fermi velocities of a few representative points of the Fermi surfaces are evaluated. The results are compatible with the velocities estimated from other properties.
