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.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
