We have investigated magnetic field strength (up to 10 kOe) and angle dependences of spin dynamics in 4-nm-thick films of CoCrPt alloys with perpendicular magnetic anisotropy using the all-optical time-resolved magneto-optical Kerr effect (TRMOKE). The comprehensive TRMOKE measurements have indicated the Gilbert damping constant α of 0.05 for the alloy film with low coercivity. The experiments also indicated that α values for the alloy films deposited at higher temperatures with higher coercivities were also no greater than 0.06.
