The changes in structural and magnetic properties of FePt thin films due to the irradiation with high energy ions (Br7+ and Cl2+) were studied. From the hysteresis loops dominating in-plane anisotropy is derived, however, the samples present a minor out-of-plane component. The structure and the magnetic properties of the films can be tuned by selecting the appropriate irradiation parameters (different ions, energies and fluencies). For the irradiation parameters used in this study an in-plane anisotropy is favoured. Irradiation with Br7+ seems to induce minor changes in the structural ordering of the thin films, whereas the Cl2+ ions promote the amorphization of the surface of the films. In addition, a magnetic thin film pattemed at the micrometer scale was obtained after irradiation through a micrometric mask.
