Sm-Fe-N films have been made by dc magnetron sputtering and heating in-situ in nitrogen atmosphere. It is observed that the anisotropy changes from perpendicular to in-plane by nitrogenation. The Curie temperature is about 380 K. Aspects of structure, hysterisis loops, initial magnetization curves and temperature dependence of coercivity are discussed.
