The spin-reorientation transition (SRT) was observed when Ag overlayers deposited on FePt (111) by magneto-optical Kerr effect measurements. The easy axis of the magnetization changes completely from the in-plane to out-of-plane direction after the coverage of Ag is 1 ML. The polar Kerr intensity and its coercivity as a function of Ag coverage are investigated during SRT. The easy axis of magnetization can be reversed back to the in-plane direction after the Ag overlayers are removed by sputtering. The chemical compositions of the interfaces are measured by Auger electron spectroscopy. The mechanism of SRT induced by Ag is discussed.
