Abstract: We report temperature dependent X-band (nu similar to 9.5 GHz) electron spin resonance (ESR) experiments in type-I clathrate Eu8Ga16Ge30. This system presents interesting thermoelectric properties in its paramagnetic state and orders ferromagnetically below T-C = 35 K Although the Eu2+ ions sits on two inequivalent sites in the type-I clathrate structure, we found in the paramagnetic state a single Dysonian Eu2+ ESR line with a nearly temperature independent g similar to 2 is observed, and its linewidth follows a Korringa-like behavior as a function of temperature. The microscopic details of the exchange coupling between the Eu2+ local moments and the conduction-electrons (c-e) in this compound are investigated through the obtained Korringa rate (Delta H/Delta T similar to 1 (1) Oe/K) and g-shift (Delta g similar to 0.01(1)) from ESR experiments combined with the magnetic susceptibility and specific heat data.
