We study algorithms that can efficiently find cube roots by modifying Cipolla-Lehmer algorithm. In this paper, we present two type algorithms for finding cube roots in finite field, which improves Cipolla-Lehmer algorithm. If the number of multiplications of two type algorithms has a little bit of a difference, then it is more efficient algorithm which have less storage variables.
