We report in-situ SMOKE of ultra-thin Fe deposits on Si(111) and Si(100). Perpendicular magnetisation is observed for growth at 100 K on both substrates but not for growth at 300 K. We correlate the structural and magnetic phase diagrams and we suggest that growth at the lower temperature leads to deposits of more uniform thickness. We attribute the observation of a region of canted magnetisation to inhomogeneity in the deposit.
