Magnetotransport measurements have been performed on (112)-oriented bulk Cd3As2 samples with in situ rotation at low temperature. The frequency analysis of the Shubnikov–de Haas oscillations reveals two weakly separated frequencies arising from two Fermi ellipsoids. The angle dependence of these frequencies is fitted by an analytical expression that we derived for any magnetic field orientation. It is based on an 8 × 8 k · p model which includes the spin-orbit coupling, the crystal field splitting due to tetragonal distortion, and the additional band splitting occurring in noncentrosymmetric crystals. This band splitting is evaluated to a finite value of 30 meV, demonstrating the absence of inversion symmetry in our Cd3 As2 crystal.
