FeNi films were fabricated by sputtering and rapid thermal annealing on thermally amorphous substrates to realize the formation of an L10-FeNi phase by a simple method. Structural and magnetic properties of FeNi films were investigated by varying the annealing temperature. L10-FeNi superlattice peaks were not observed in X-ray diffraction patterns, indicating no formation of L10-ordered phase, however, the surface structure systematically changed with the annealing temperature. Magnetization curves also revealed a drastic change depending on the annealing temperature, which indicates the close relation between the morphology and magnetic properties of FeNi films fabricated on amorphous substrates.
