Abstract : A study of the low field de Haas-van Alphen effect in Zn employing automatic recording of the variation of the torque as a function of the reciprocal of the applied magnetic field revealed 6 sets of periods. These periods areASSIGNED IN A CONSISTENT MANNER TO PORTIONS OF THE FREE-ELECTRON MODEL OF THE Fermi surface (single OPW). Cyclotron masses associated with the 3 larger sets of the observed periods agreed well with the theoretical estimates. Evidence is obtained for the presence of a spin-orbit energy gap across the hexagonal face of the first Brillouin zone near the corners. Thus, the validity of the single Brillouin zone construction is demonstrated for Zn. (Author)
