Low-field microwave absorption has been measured as a function of magnetic field in a series of thin film structures exhibiting or not exhibiting the giant magnetoresistance effect (GMR). Although a close correlation has been found between the microwave absorption and GMR, an additional absorption due to magnetization reversal is shown to have substantial effect on the overall microwave response.
