Crystalline films of La0.65Pb0.35MnO3 grown on Si (100) substrates by rf sputtering have been investigated by ferromagnetic resonance and MOKE. The dependence of the ferromagnetic resonance line parameters on the sample orientation and temperature is investigated. An expression for the angular dependence of the resonance field on the orientation of the sample is proposed, based on the assumption that close to the Curie temperature the Zeeman and demagnetizing terms are dominant. MOKE data support this hypothesis. The temperature dependence of the magnetization at saturation, in relative units, estimated from ferromagnetic resonance agrees with SQUID data. ©2000 American Institute of Physics.
