Ultrathin Co films were deposited on Si(111) surface. These films always exhibited a canted out-of-plane easy axis of magnetization. Experimentally, it was shown that the in-plane magnetization for ultrathin Co films can be obtained by using few-ML-thickness Ag as a buffer layer. The ferromagnetic inactive layers at the interface formed due to intermixing of Co and Si.
