## Abstract

The effective g factor g^{*} of conduction electrons in degenerate CdTe has been determined by using measurements of the Cd^{113} nuclear spin-lattice relaxation time T_{1} and the Knight shift K. It is shown that the magnitude of g^{*} is given by the Korringa product T_{1}TK^{2}=C(g^{*})^{2}, where C is a known constant and T is the absolute temperature, and that the sign of g^{*} is given by the sign of K for a spherically symmetric conduction band. The measured value, g^{*}=-1.1±0.1, is within the range allowed by effective-mass theory. Also, the electronic probability density at the nucleus, normalized to unity in an atomic volume, is calculated to be |ψ_{F}(0)|^{2}≃6.5×10^{25} cm^{-3}, about 70% of that found for the free Cd ion in a 5s^{2}S_{1/2} state.
