ZnO nanocrystals doped with Fe2O3 have been synthesized by the calcination method. Ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) study of 0.3(Fe2O3/0.7(ZnO) nanocomposite has been carried out in the 4–300 K range. The presence of magnetic zinc ferrite ZnFe2O4 nanoparticles with an average crystallite size of 11 nm was identified by XRD. Temperature dependence of the resonance field, linewidth and the integrate intensity calculated from FMR spectra has been determined. Existence of two temperature regimes: high (above 50 K) and low (below 50 K) has been established, further divided into two temperature ranges. The results of FMR study of agglomerated ZnFe2O4 nanoparticles indicate an important role of magnetic interactions, both inter-particle (exchange and dipolar) and intra-particle connected with the core-shell magnetic structure.
