The spin dynamics of a resident carrier, hole or electron, in singly charged InAs/GaAs quantum dots has been measured by pump-probe experiments. The relative strength of the hole to the electron hyperfine couplings with nuclei is obtained by studying the magnetic-field dependence of the resident-carrier spin polarization. We find, in good agreement with recent theoretical studies, that the hole hyperfine coupling is ten times smaller than the electron one.
