We report results on highly oriented, face-centered tetragonal ordered CoPt and FePt thin films grown nonepitaxially by directly depositing films on thermally oxidized Si substrates and subsequent annealing. By controlling the thickness, composition, and annealing conditions, and/or depositing a proper underlayer, nearly perfect (001)-oriented CoPt and FePt films can be obtained. Magnetic measurements reveal large perpendicular anisotropy for such films.
