Quantitative characterizations of nanostructures in FePt granular thin films were achieved by transmission electron microscopy with various analytical methods. Significant amounts of Fe and Pt atoms are dissolved within the matrix of Al2O3 in the as-deposited states. These solutioned Fe and Pt atoms play important roles of the structural changes during thermal annealing process.
