Abstract

We report on the transport properties of ferromagnetic p-In 0.96Mn0.04As with Nb superconducting electrodes. We observed conductance reduction within the superconducting gap. This behavior can be qualitatively understood by considering the suppression of Andreev reflection caused by spin polarization in p-In0.96Mn 0.04As.
