We experimentally studied the gate voltage dependence of spin transport in multilayer graphene (MLG) using the nonlocal spin detection technique. We found that the spin signal is a monotonically decreasing linear function of the resistance of MLG, which is characteristic of the intermediate interfacial transparency between the MLG and the ferromagnetic electrodes (Co). The linear relation indicates a large spin relaxation length significantly exceeding 8 μm. This shows the superiority of MLG for the utilization of the graphite-based spintronic devices.
