We succeeded in observing the de Haas-van Alphen (dHvA) effect in LaRuPO, which is a sister compound of iron-based oxypnictide superconductors. All the detected dHvA frequencies, which correspond to the maximum or minimum cross-sectional areas of Fermi surfaces, approximately follow the 1/cos 6 dependence, where 6 is a field-tilted angle from the tetragonal [001] direction to the [100] and [110] directions. The Fermi surfaces are found to consist of two cylindrical hole Fermi surfaces and two cylindrical electron Fermi surfaces on the basis of the similar cylindrical Fermi surfaces in LaFePO and the result of energy band calculations. The cyclotron effective mass in LaRuPO is light, ranging from 0.55 to 0.86 mo, which is compared with a large cyclotron mass in LaFePO. These two-dimensional Fermi surfaces in LaRuPO and LaFePO are also compared with the three-dimensional Fermi surfaces in LaFe 2P 2.
