Abstract. The structural characteristics of magnetite micropowder were studied by X-ray phase analysis and scanning electron microscopy. The lattice parameter is determined, and the average sizes of coherent scattering regions and the value of microstrain are calculated by the Scherrer equation and Williamson-Hall plot methods. The direct-current resistivity was measured for Fe3O4 micropowder (ρ = 0.026 Ohm×m). Composite materials were fabricated based on magnetite with various degrees of concentration by weight (50%, 60%, 70%, 80%, 90%). S-parameters were measured in the transmission line mode on a vector network analyzer. Electrodynamic parameters (magnetic and dielectric constant) and densities were calculated for the fabricated composite materials.

Key words: magnetite, ferrimagnetic, composite materials, microstructure, electrodynamic parameters.
