Mesoscopic hybrid planar Josephson junctions have attracted a lot of interest in the recent decade in terms of their possible applications in the electronics, spintronics, quantum computing and fundamental research. We have investigated the transport properties of Josephson junctions based on superconductor – normal metal/ ferromagnet – superconductor (Al-Cu/ Fe-Al) with double layered N/F weak link (Cu/Fe) under the controllable spin polarized current injection at low temperatures and in weak magnetic fields. Spin polarized current was injected in the middle of the Josephson junction from the perpendicular ferromagnet electrode. We have observed the supercurrent in this type of junctions show nonlinear dependence of low values injection current from F-electrode. We claimed that this effect is due to 0-π transition, i.e. the fundamental Josephson relation can be changed from I=IcsinΦ to I=Icsin (Φ+π) by controlling not only energy distribution as it was done in but also with the presence of spin polarization of the injection current. Our experiments also demonstrated the appearance of double-peak peculiarity in differential resistance at high values of the injection current which is assumed to be due to the double proximity effect.
