The extreme quantum limit in doped InSb shows up a strong nmr relaxation peak as the external magnetic field is swept. This peak is explored at helium temperatures in fields up to 11T and doping densities up to 1023m−3 A beat between the plasma zero-point motion and the electronic Larmor frequency is conjectured as an explanation of the effect.
