Ultrafast spin dynamics has for the first time been studied in perpendicular magnetized granular films. For FePt continuous films and FePt–MgO and FePt–Ag granular films with femtosecond laser excitations, the coercivity HC and the saturation Kerr rotation θKS are dramatically reduced, accompanied by a sharp increase in the reflectivity R. Afterward, these physical quantities are slowly recovered. The changes in HC, θKS, and R are all different among FePt, FePt–MgO, and FePt–Ag films. The difference is caused by different film thicknesses and in particular by the surface plasmon resonance of metallic nanoparticles.
