We demonstrate electrical spin injection from ferromagnetic Fe/Tb multilayer structures with remanent perpendicular magnetization into GaAs-based light-emitting diodes at room temperature. Using a reverse-biased Schottky contact and a MgO tunnel contact, respectively, we achieve spin injection at remanence. The maximum degree of circular polarization of the emitted light is 3% at room temperature.
