    We investigate transport through 6–10 nm thin epitaxial GaAs(001) barriers sandwiched between polycrystalline iron films. Apart from a pronounced tunneling magnetoresistance effect at low magnetic fields, we observe a distinct negative magnetoresistance (MR) at low and a positive MR at...

    We have investigated the correlation between magnetic and structural properties in exchange coupled polycrystalline CoO/Fe thin films. It has been found that an increase in interface roughness increases the exchange bias field as well as the coercivity. The magnetization reversal mechanism is...
