Magnetic and superconducting proximity effects on the transport properties of hybrid heterostructures (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Alex Matos-Abiague; Igor Zutic

Paper Abstract

We theoretically investigate the interplay between SOFs and proximity-induced magnetism in hybrid SM/F heterostructures (SM and F stand for semiconductor ferromagnet, respectively) as well as its effect on spectral and transport properties. The anisotropic spin-dependent transport leads to the emergence of novel magnetoresistive phenomena in planar SM/F multi-terminal devices, where both the longitudinal and transverse Hall-like responses become anisotropic with respect to the magnetization orientation. We also investigate the superconducting proximity effect in SM/S heterostructures (S stands for superconductor), where the interfacial SOFs can lead to the emergence of triplet pairing even for s-type S materials.
