The frequencies of the different Zeeman components of the neutral calcium metastable (4s, 4p)3P1 and 3P2 levels were measured in a highly homogeneous magnetic field of the order of 0.4 T by a double-resonance technique in an atomic metastable beam. The Landé factor of the two levels was determined as gJ(3P1)=1.5010829(28) and gJ(3P2)=1.5011308(75).
