Abstract

The anisotropic Hall effect and magnetization have been investigated for single crystals of [Formula presented] under high magnetic fields up to 27 T and at low temperatures down to 50 mK. The magnetization curves indicate that the Nd moments with strong Ising anisotropy are coupled antiferromagnetically with the Mo spins and show field-induced flipping on the respective sites. The Hall resistivity changes its sign with increasing field applied along the [111] direction, while it monotonously approaches zero with the field applied along the [100] or [110] direction. This behavior is in accord with the prediction by the Berry phase theory and is interpreted in terms of the field-induced reversal of spin chirality on the pyrochlore lattice.
