The longitudinal spin-Seebeck effect (LSSE) has been investigated in cobalt ferrite (CFO), an exceptionally hard magnetic spinel ferrite. A bilayer of a polycrystalline Pt and an epitaxially-strained CFO(110) exhibiting an in-plane uniaxial anisotropy was prepared by reactive rf sputtering technique. Thermally generated spin voltage in the CFO layer was measured via the inverse spin-Hall effect in the Pt layer. Externalmagnetic-field ($$H$$) dependence of the LSSE voltage ($$V_{LSSE}$$) in the Pt/CFO(110) sample with $$H |[001]$$ was found to exhibit a hysteresis loop with a high squareness ratio and high coercivity, while that with $$H |[1 overline{1} 0]$$ shows a nearly closed loop, reflecting the different anisotropies induced by the epitaxial strain. The magnitude of $$V_{LSSE}$$ has a linear relationship with the temperature difference ($$Delta T$$), giving the relatively large $$V_{LSSE}$$/$$Delta T$$ of about 3 $$mu$$V/K for CFO(110) which was kept even at zero external field.
