The crystallographic structure and magnetic properties of Ag-doped FePt thin films were investigated. It was shown that cosputtering Ag with FepT On a Cr90Ru10 underlayer changed the film texture and magnetic easy axis from the perpendicular to then longitudinal direction and reduced the magnetic grain size. The results suggested that Ag doping is an efficient way by which to fabricate L10 FePt thin films with longitudinal anisotropy.
