    We have been investigating the spin motive force induced by magnetization dynamics in ferromagnetic materials. Ferrimagnetic materials are expected to exhibit even larger spin motive force due to their spatially staggered magnetic structure and high frequency spin wave modes. We believe that magnetite (Fe 3O4) is one of the candidates for this purpose. Here, we report magnetic resonance in Fe3O4 thin films epitaxially grown on a MgO (001) substrate. The gyromagnetic ratio and the effective saturation magnetization are estimated to be 1.71 × 1011 s -1T-1 and 364 emu/cm3, respectively. The Gilbert damping constant of 0.02 is obtained from the magnetic field dependence of the linewidth. We expect to investigate the spin motive force induced from this magnetic resonance.
