We present experimental results for hybrid ferromagnet/semiconductor devices in which 2D electrons propagate through sub-micron width magnet barriers. Magnetoresistances, MR, of similar to ∼1000% are found at low temperatures and similar to ∼1% at room temperature. We compared the measured behavior with numerical calculations and give the conditions needed to achieve large room temperature MR.
