Ferromagnetic resonance spectra of the La 0.67 Ca 0.33 MnO 3 ferromagnetic film deposited onto the x-cut LiNbO 3 substrate were investigated in a wide temperature range. The strain was mechanically introduced into the film using a special holder configuration. This leads to a shift of resonance field with respect to that of the as-grown sample. Analysis of the magnetic resonance shift, induced by a mechanical stress, allowed us to determine the magnetostriction constant λ 100 . The magnetostriction determined in this way versus saturation magnetization could be well described by the Callen and Callen theory suggesting the domination of the single ion crystal field interaction in the sample being in the ferromagnetic state.
