Exciton spin relaxation in bulk GaN was directly observed with sufficient time resolution for the first time, to our knowledge, by spin dependent pump and probe reflectance measurement with sub-picosecond's time resolution. The spin relaxation times at 150-225 K are 0.47-0.25 ps. These are at least one order of magnitude shorter than those of the other III-V compound semiconductors. The spin relaxation time, τS, is found to be proportional to T 1.4, where T is the temperature.
