L10-type Co100-xPtx single crystals were prepared by atomic ordering under compressive stress and the magnetic properties were investigated. The second order magnetocrystalline anisotropy constant K1 at 298 K exhibits a maximum value of 4.1×107 erg cm-3 at x=50. On the other hand, the fourth order magnetocrystalline anisotropy constant K2 becomes minimum at the same composition. The large uniaxial magnetocrystalline anisotropy constant KU with a low saturation magnetization M S in L10-type Co100-xPtx would bring about the thermal stability of the single magnetic domain state, as well as the sharp coherent magnetization reversal.
