Ion beam irradiation under weak or moderate fluence allows to modify and even control the magnetic properties of thin film structures [1–2]. So, this method stands now as an elegant technique for magnetic nanopatterning [3].Spin reorientation transition form in-plane to out-of-plane state in Pt/Co/Pt film with cobalt thickness 3nm after irradiation by 30 keV Ga+ ions with doses of 0.5 x 1015 and 1015 ions/cm2 was observed. Experiments were made with magneto-optical base microscopy and magnetic force microscopy.
