We investigate spin-dependent transport through an epitaxial GaAs(001) barrier sandwiched between polycrystalline iron films. Electron transport through the barrier is dominated by quantum mechanical tunneling, demonstrated by a nonlinear I–V characteristic, an exponential dependence of the tunneling current on the barrier thickness and the temperature dependence of the current. Though small a ...
