    The structure and magnetic properties of sequentially deposited Pd-Co and Pd-Co-Fe nanocrystals have been investigated by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and superconducting quantum interference device magnetometer. The fcc structured PdCo alloy formation was found in binary Pd-Co nanostructured samples analysed by in situ TEM annealing. In ternary sample, the addition of Fe to Pd-Co resulted in a complex of Pd and FeCo nanoparticles. In situ TEM annealing of the ternary sample lead to the formation of Ll0 ordered phase. It was found that the magnetic properties of the nanoparticles were improved by Fe addition to the Pd-Co nanoparticles.
