The kinetics of ordering in nanostructured CoPt particles is investigated. The low activation energy (58 ± 2 kJ/mol) of the ordering process indicates that the kinetics of ordering is not limited by bulk diffusion. Coercivity grows along with the degree of ordering and reaches its maximum value of 14.2 kOe upon the complete ordering of CoPt alloy with a crystallite size of no more than that of a single domain.
