Spin injection and accumulation have been investigated for Py/Pt/Py lateral spin valves with various channel length. Clear spin valve effects were found at antiparallel magnetic configuration of two ferromagnetic electrodes. The observation of memory effect suggests the spin valve effect observed in Pt channel is resulted from effective spin injection and detection. The magnitude of spin valve signal decreases as the channel length increases. The measurement yields that spin diffusion length and spin injection polarization of Pt channel is 120 nm and 18% at 5K.
