Miniaturization of electronic and magnetic devices to the nanometer length scale necessitates a quantum mechanical understanding of the processes guiding device performance. Interfaces play an important, even dominant, role in charge transfer and charge/spin transport along and across thin layers. By means of first-principles calculations and physical models, in this thesis we investigate the interactions at interfaces among different materials, and how these affect electrical and spin transport.
