The magnetization reversal for perpendicularly magnetized L10-FePt (001) nanodots with different interdot distances was studied by magnetic domain observation. We show the results for two kinds of dot arrays: (i) the dots with physical percolation leading to direct exchange coupling, and (ii) the dots which are fully isolated experiencing only dipolar interaction. For the physically percolated dot array, ferromagnetic domains were observed in which domain expanded with magnetic field. On the other hand, the array with the isolated FePt dots also exhibited domain like features resembling to the percolated dots, indicating the existence of superferromagnetism in the array of FePt nanodots.
