    The alloying reaction of Fe and Pt and the ordering reaction in nanometer-sized FePt particles was observed by in-situ TEM observation. At the initial stage of annealing, Fe started to dissolved into the Pt particles, then the ordering reaction started to occur simultaneously. These two reactions continued until all the Fe dissolved into the Pt during the annealing. The large magnetic coercivities as large as 815 kA/m were explained by the disappearance of the three-variants domains and the formation of crystallographic single domains.
