Cyclotron resonance studies on the charge-density-wave metal NbSe3 at 2 Kelvin reveal two types of free carriers (with effective mass 03.18m0 and 0.71 m0 respectively.) The measured lifetimes agree with earlier estimates of the dc mobility. An unexplained shift of the resonance field of the form ω02 + ωc2 is observed when the laser electric field is polarized perpendicular to the chain direction.
