    We study the effect of the Dresselhaus spin-orbit interaction on the magnetoresistance (MR) of a quasi-one-dimensional ferromagnetic semiconductor containing a sharp domain wall. The MR is calculated in the ballistic regime, within the Landauer-B�ttiker formalism. The results show that the...

    Electrical spin injection into silicon was studied in a ferromagnet/insulator/silicon/insulator/ferromagnet structure, where the insulator is Si3N4. Si3N4 barriers conduct by hopping conduction at low voltages, but switch to Fowler-Nordheim tunneling at high voltages. In the Fowler-Nordheim...

    The magnetoresistance technique has been introduced recently as a means of determining experimentally the mobility in bulk metal-oxide-semiconductor transistor and silicon-on-insulator devices. This technique does not require a precise determination of the channel length, and it also has the...
