Low temperature Shubnikov-de Haas oscillations and the Hall effect have been studied on a HgTe/CdTe superlattice grown by laser MBE. The results indicate that three subbands in the quantum well contribute to the conductivity. A lineshape fit of the SdH data also indicates that the intermediate SdH component has an electron effective mass ratio which is five times larger than the mass ratio of the lower frequency SdH component.
