The recently discovered spin Hall magnetoresistance (SMR) effect is a useful means to obtain information on the magnetization process at the interface between a nonmagnetic metal and ferromagnetic insulators. We report the SMR measurements at the interface between platinum and cobalt ferrite thin films for samples with two different preferential directions of magnetization (out-of-plane and in-plane). The directional difference of the magnetic easy axis does not seem to influence the value of SMR.
