Measurements have been performed of the Knight shift in cadmium as a function of field between 1 and 20 kG at 1.2 °K and as a function of temperature between 1.2 and 300 °K at 9.4kG. The field-dependent studies show an oscillatory behavior of the Knight shift at the de Haas-van Alphen frequency appropriate to the first band in the higher-field ranges. In the low-field region the average value of the Knight shift is found to exhibit a strong anisotropic field dependence. The temperature-dependent measurements show that the anisotropy in the Knight shift reverses sign between 1.2 and 300 °K. Measurements of the amplitude of the de Haas-van Alphen signals were performed in the same field range and orientation as the oscillatory Knight-shift measurements. All of the measurements reported are accounted for by the detailed field and temperature dependence of the topology of the cadmium Fermi surface.
