Magnetic insulators and nonmagnetic metals are both large classes of materials, but their combined application for insulator spintronics hinges on peculiar interface effects, such as spin Hall magnetoresistance (SMR). This effect is usually exploited for metals like Pt or Ta , which offer good chemical properties and large spin Hall angles.
However, many more metals can be employed in SMR applications when longitudinal and transverse resistances are properly separated  to routinely access smaller magnetoresistance effects.
We demonstrate this approach through a thorough study  of a Au thin film on the magnetic insulator Y3Fe5O12 revealing both longitudinal and transverse magnetotransport signatures of the spin Hall magnetoresistance. An anomalous Hall effect due to proximity magnetization is not evident. We calculate spintronic quantities like spin mixing conductivities based only on static magnetotransport results using a meta-analysis.
