The oscillatory components of the transverse magnetoresistance of single crystals of antimony has been measured at 1.15°K in the range of magnetic fields from 4000-25 000 G using a derivative technique. Measurements were made for the field in the x-z, y-z, and x-y planes. Two sets of ellipsoidal carriers are clearly observed. One of the carriers was that observed by Shoenberg for which we found: α11α22=0.334×1028EF2, α11α33=0.563×1028EF2, and α11α23=0.352×1028EF2. We also found for the second set of carriers β11β22=0.0227×1028EF2, β11β33=0.625×1028EF2, β11β23=0.0424×1028EF2, and β22β33-β232=0.0627×1028EF2. Discussions are included relating this data to that of other experiments.
