FePt thin films are made via the heat treatment of structures containing Pt (001) and Fe (001) epitaxial layers. X-ray spectral analysis and field-emission scanning electron microscopy show that the samples contain the cubic L12–Fe3Pt phase and the tetragonal L10–FePt phase. The magnetic anisotropy of the thin films is studied by ferromagnetic resonance and magnetometric methods. The contributions from the cubic and tetragonal phases to the ferromagnetic-resonance spectrum of the sample are distinguished. The key characteristics of thin films which determine their practical applicability are determined: the Gilbert damping parameter G ~ 0.4, the first and second crystal anisotropy constants K1⊥ = –4.08 × 106 erg/cm3, K2⊥ = 1.34 × 106 erg/cm3, K2|| = –9.76 × 104 erg/cm3.
