We have succeeded in fully describing dynamic properties of spin current including the different spin absorption mechanisms for longitudinal and transverse spins in lateral spin valves, which enable one to elucidate intrinsic spin transport and relaxation mechanisms in the nonmagnet. The deduced spin lifetimes are found independent of the contact type. From the transit-time distribution of spin current extracted from the Fourier transform in Hanle measurement data, the velocity of the spin current in Ag with Py/Ag Ohmic contact turns out much faster than that expected from the widely used model.
