The de Haas-van Alphen effect in InBi single crystals has been studied by means of a torque method at liquid helium temperatures in magnetic fields up to 23 kilogauss. Three different oscillation periods were observed in the fields which were applied parallel to the plane including the c-axis. Each maximum period in oscillations was attained at the magnetic field parallel to the c-axis, and the periods decreased as the field was rotated. The effective masses and the collision broadening parameters were obtained from the field and temperature dependence of the amplitude of the de Haas-van Alphen oscillations. On the other hand, the de Haas-van Alphen oscillations were not observed with the fields in the case when the c-axis was set vertically. The shapes and sizes of the Fermi surfaces deduced from the three periods of oscillations above mentioned are described.
