We analyze the conductance spectra with the theoretical model of [R. Grein et al., Phys. Rev. B 81, 094508 (2010)], which accounts for momentum- and spin-dependent scattering at the interface. We show that this allows for fitting the data without resorting to an effective temperature or statistical distribution of superconducting gaps, as it is the case for the spin-dependent version of the standard Blonder-Tinkham-Klapwijk (BTK) model. We find a transport polarization P_C of about 56% at the Fermi level and comparing it to the k.p kinetic-exchange model of (Ga,Mn)As, we achieve a considerably better agreement than estimates inferred from the spin-dependent BTK model which are significantly higher. The temperature dependence of the conductance spectra is fully analyzed.</dcterms:abstract> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Grein, Roland</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Piano, Samanta</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Gallagher, Bryan</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Spin polarization of (Ga,Mn)As measured by Andreev Spectroscopy : The role of spin-active scattering</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Wang, M.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2011</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-04-11T14:57:32Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Mellor, Christopher J.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Mellor, Christopher J.</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Piano, Samanta</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
