Abstract

We report on the fabrication of metallic lateral spin valves using different evaporation directions for respective ferromagnetic and nonmagnetic materials. In this way, we can fabricate and connect different nanowires through the same resist mask in a single evaporation sequence, avoiding interface contamination. With this technique and by reducing the wire widths down to 50 nm, we obtained spin signals as large as 24mω at 77 K in devices with transparent interfaces. We studied the influence of the nonmagnetic metal. Spin signals are found to be much larger for Al and Cu than for Au-based devices.
