The hybrid superconductor/2D electron gas (S/2DEG) structures based on InGaAs-InP hetero-junctions with a high-mobility 2D electron gas and superconducting NbN electrodes have been investigated. The electronic transport and current-voltage characteristics of S/2DEG/normal metal (S/2DEG/N) structures in strong perpendicular magnetic fields have been studied. Oscillations in the magnetoresistance of S/2DEG/N structures have been found in strong magnetic fields. It is shown that at bias voltages lower than the superconducting gap the amplitude of oscillations in S/2DEG/N structures significantly exceeds the oscillation amplitude in the reference N/2DEG/N samples. The experimental results can be explained within the quasiclassical theory of magnetotransport in S/2DEG structures developed by N.M. Chtchelkatchev and I.S. Burmistrov (Phys. Rev. B, 2007, vol. 75, 214 510).
