We have investigated the magneto- and spin-current-transport properties in patterned Gd wires in order to understand the interplay between the spin current and the spin entropy. From the magneto-transport measurements, the electrical resistance was found to decrease with decreasing the spin entropy because of the suppression of the spin fluctuation. We also found that the Gd acts as a strong absorber both for the ac and dc pure spin currents from the ferromagnetic resonance and nonlocal spin injection experiments.
