A new fabrication method to make a submicron-sized lateral spin-valve device is presented. In this method, magnetic patterns with nano-scaled channel lengths are implemented with Vanadium hard mask. For the non-local geometry, a AR of 4 mω is detected and for the local spin-valve geometry, magnetoresistance of 0.1% is obtained at T = 10 K. Due to the sharp magnetization switching of the flat ferromagnet, clear spin signal transitions between parallel and antiparallel alignments are observed. A quantitative analysis, including the spin-orbit interaction parameter, indicates the feasibility of spin transistor applications.
