Abstract

The high-field magnetization measurement of the antiferro (AF) magnetic compound NdB6, which has a small magnetic anisotropy in low magnetic fields, revealed an unexpected metamagnetic transition. This is observed only for H ∥ 〈111〉, while the magnetization curve for H ∥ 〈100〉 and 〈110〉 is normal, as usually observed in an AF magnet with a small magnetic anisotropy. To our knowledge, this is the first example of the anisotropic magnetic field induced metamagnetic transition for a compound with a small magnetic anisotropy in low magnetic fields.
