Abstract

We report Larmor precession in bulk InSb observed up to 300K in the time domain by means of the circularly polarized pump-probe technique. We show that provided we include only the dilational change of the energy gap with temperature, we obtain reasonable agreement between experiment and k.p theory for the high temperature g-factor in InSb.
