We fabricated hexagonal arrays of Co/Pt nanodots on Si surfaces by pulsed laser deposition (PLD) using cylindrically phase-separated polystyrene-b- poly(methylmethacrylate) (PS-b-PMMA) diblock copolymer thin films as templates after the removal of PMMA. The size and the separation of the nanodots were 23 and 40 nm, respectively, and the density of the nanodots was 1.5 x 10 11/cm 2. The magnetic properties of nanodot arrays measured by vibrating sample magnetometer were compared with those of PLD grown film. The films showed magnetic anisotropy with an easy axis in the in-plane direction, whereas no noticeable anisotropy was observed for nanodot arrays. In addition, the saturation magnetization (Ms) of both the Co/Pt nanodots and the film increased with the Pt content.
