Title: Anisotropic magnetic properties of Dy{sub 6}Cr{sub 4}Al{sub 43} single crystal

We have studied the anisotropic magnetic behavior of the rare earth intermetallic compound Dy{sub 6}Cr{sub 4}Al{sub 43}. This compound crystallizes in the hexagonal symmetry and orders ferromagnetically at 8.3 K as confirmed by the magnetic susceptibility and heat capacity measurements. A significant anisotropy in the magnetization is observed between the c axis and the ab-plane. The easy axis liesin theab-plane at low temperatures; however it orients itselfalong the c-axis above 170 K as inferred from the susceptibility data.
