We succeeded in observing the de Haas-van Alphen (dHvA) oscillation of YbAl3. The single crystals were grown by the self-flux method. The residual resistivity and residual resistivity ratio were 0.5 μΩ cm and 60, respectively. Three fundamental dHvA branches were detected for the magnetic field along the 〈1 0 0〉 direction. Their cyclotron masses were in the range from 8.1 to 22 m0, reflecting a relatively large electronic specific heat coefficient γ = 58 mJ/K2 mol.
