We investigate ballistic spin transport in a two-dimensional electron-gas system containing magnetic barriers of various geometries by using the transfer matrix method. While most previous studies have focused on the effect of magnetic barriers perpendicular to the two-dimensional electron gas plane, we concentrate on the case of magnetic barriers parallel to the plane. We show that resonant oscillation occurs in the lower incident energy region in the transmission probability without any…

In-plane stray field induced spin-filtering in a two-dimensional electron gas under the modulation of surface ferromagnetic dual-gate
Based upon a hybrid ferromagnet/semiconductor structure consisting of two-dimensional electron gas and a pair of surface ferromagnetic stripes on top, we have theoretically investigated the effect of
Spin filtering in single magnetic barrier structures revisited
We reexamine spin-dependent transport properties of two-dimensional electrons modulated by the stray field of a ferromagnetic metal (FM) stripe on top. When the magnetization is along the transport
Wave-vector-dependent spin filtering and spin transport through magnetic barriers in graphene
We study the spin-resolved transport through magnetic nanostructures in monolayer and bilayer graphene. We take into account both the orbital effect of the inhomogeneous perpendicular magnetic field
Electron tunneling through double magnetic barriers on the surface of a topological insulator
We study electron tunneling through a planar magnetic and electric barrier on the surface of a three-dimensional topological insulator. For the double barrier structures, we find (i) a
Direct electronic measurement of the spin Hall effect
Electrical measurements of the spin Hall effect in a diffusive metallic conductor are reported, using a ferromagnetic electrode in combination with a tunnel barrier to inject a spin-polarized current to reveal opportunities for efficient spin detection without the need for magnetic materials.
Spin filtering in an electromagnetic structure
We investigate possible spin-dependent resonant tunneling through double-barrier electromagnetic structure. We point out that previous related studies contain serious errors in the calculation and
Spin currents modulated by magnetic barriers in semiconductor nanowires
We present the properties of ballistic spin transport through magnetic barrier structures in semiconductor nanowires. Landauer's approach is adopted for the calculation of spin transport properties
Spin filtering in a magnetic-electric barrier structure
The spin-dependent tunnelling of two-dimensional electrons through a magnetic barrier can be substantially enhanced by the addition of an electric barrier. The spin polarization is found to be
Magnetic-texture-controlled transverse spin injection
We propose an effect whereby an electric current along the interface between a ferromagnetic and normalmetal leads to injection of pure spin current into the normal metal, if the magnetization
Spin transport in proximity-induced ferromagnetic graphene
Ferromagnetic insulators deposited on graphene can induce ferromagnetic correlations in graphene. We estimate that induced exchange splittings
