The magnetization of single crystalline TbB4 has been investigated in the antiferromagnetically ordered state up to 54 T. At 4.2 K, for B ∥ [0 0 1], the magnetization shows field-induced multi-step jumps and several plateau regions above 16 T, and finally reaches saturation at about 28 T. The magnetization in the (0 0 1) plane, on the other hand, shows only one large jump at Bc = 16 and 12 T for B ∥ [1 0 0] and B ∥ [1 1 0], respectively, and gradually increases toward saturation above Bc. The magnetization curves have also been measured at higher temperatures to establish the magnetic phase diagram.
