Abstract: We investigated the transport properties of ferromagnetic/semiconductor hybrid structures utilizing an InAs/In_<0.75>Al_<0.25>As modulation-doped heterostructures formed on a GaAs (001) substrate with In_xAl_<1-x>As step-graded buffer layers. We used NiFe as ferromagnetic electrodes for injection/detection of spin-polarized electrons, which were formed on side walls of the semiconductor mesa to contact electron channel directly. We measured magneto-transport properties of the samples with current flow between the ferromagnetic electrodes at low temperatures. Under vertical magnetic fields, magneto-resistance oscillations were clearly observed, thus the ferromagnetic electrodes worked as ohmic contacts. In addition, we successfully found spin-valve properties under parallel magnetic fields. Furthermore, we observed the enhancement of spin-valve properties by squeezing the channel width.
