• Pure spin currents and spin accumulation and consequently magnetism, can be induced in non magnetic materials just by a flow on a non spin-polarized charge current (Spin Hall effect). However, magnetism in some non-magnetic materials can also been induced by proximity effect by neighboring magnetic layers.
• Here we show that in Pt/CoFe2O4 hybrid systems, spin currents are generated in absence of any proximity-induced magnetic moments in Platinum.
